Business Meeting Recap
Thanks to those who attended our business meeting last week. It was nice to see everyone again after some time. It was even better to hear everyone's eagerness to get back to doing good works in face of the "new normal".

Highlights of the meeting:
  • We discussed things that we can work on as we continue to shelter in place.
  • We reviewed the calendar and budget for the next Columbian Year. Click on the button below to view the documents.
  • We went over the reduced requirements for Star Council which now puts us in a position to achieve Double Star for the year with 6 new members by June 30.
  • Our Worthy Field Agent discussed plans for a virtual benefits information session. This is tentatively scheduled for May 19. More details to come as the schedule is finalized.

Minutes of the meeting are in final review and will be published soon.

Oratio Imperata
Prayer for Protection Against COVID-19
God our Father,
We come to you in our need
To ask your protection against the COVID-19 Virus,
That has claimed lives and has affected many.

We pray for your grace
For the people tasked with studying the nature and cause
Of this virus and its disease
And of stemming the tide of its transmission.
Guide the hands and minds of medical experts
That they may minister to the sick
With competence and compassion,
And of those governments and private agencies
That must find cure and solution to this epidemic.

We pray for those afflicted
May they be restored to health soon.

Grant us the grace
To work for the good of all
And to help those in need.

Grant this through our Lord, Jesus Christ, your Son,
Who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever. Amen. 
In our prayers
