State Deputy Patrick Winchester's Message
April 2015

In just a few weeks, we will meet in Topeka for the 114th Kansas State Convention!  The Convention is and will always be a great time to renew old friendships and to celebrate the achievements of the fraternal year.  It looks we’ll have many things to celebrate: new records in tootsie roll donations, a record amount of Religious Education monies raised, the installation of two sonogram machines in pregnancy crisis centers, and the installation of three new Knights of Columbus Councils!

In the Beginning….........

Week 9 Pentecost = Chris’s fingerprints are already evident. The fingers can curve around an object placed in the palm. Now Chris can feel pain but who would want to hurt Chris? Chris is having a wonderful time wriggling, shifting, dancing and playing with the toys in the womb – other fingers, toes, nose, ears – such fun! If only we had a window to the womb. The mother is coping with many changes – nurturing a baby is hard work.

“You know me through and through, from having watched my bones take shape when I was being formed in secret…” Ps 139:15
