RE: Council Operations and Relaxation of Pandemic Restrictions
The coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to present a risk, especially to persons who are unvaccinated or vulnerable due to age or medical condition. Because the health and safety of our members and guests is of paramount concern, council officers and members are advised to proceed cautiously as pandemic restrictions on events, gatherings and activities are lifted.

The Order’s policy for fraternal activity during the current pandemic has been updated as follows:

  1. Members, and especially council officers, should exercise prudential judgment when planning or participating in travel, meetings, activities and events. They must research and obey all parish, diocesan and civil regulations.
  2. All members should be given the opportunity to participate remotely in meetings and events. The website includes numerous resources highlighting virtual practices and procedures.

This policy is subject to change in response to new developments in the pandemic.
