2020 CA State eConvention
The 118th CA State Convention was held last Saturday, May 16. This was the first convention ever to be done virtually. During the business meeting portion of the convention, a number of resolutions were passed, the State budget for CY 2020-2021 was presented and approved and a new slate of officers were elected. The second part of the convention was the awards ceremony where the Livermore Knights once again shined!

Our Council got the following awards:
  • Three 1st Place Winners for the State Essay Competition on Catholic Stewardship (student names will be announced after they are notified)
  • 2nd Place in Family Activities Program for our Christmas Baskets program
  • 1st Place in Community Activities Program for the Wheelchair Mission and Crab Feed
  • Best in State Community Program - Wheelchair Mission

Due to technical issues, our entries for Culture of Life and Faith Activities programs are still being re-evaluated. Our entire activities program is also being re-valuated for Best Program in the State Overall. Results should be available later this week.

We received a lot of excellent feedback for all our programs. The State Deputy, State Warden-elect and State Awards Program Chairman have all complimented the activities packages that were submitted by our Council.

This is all a reflection and product of all the hard work that our Council does in supporting our parish communities.

CONGRATULATIONS and THANK YOU, Brothers for all that you do!!!

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.
