Welcome to fall. My how the time flies by-where did the summer go?
I found this quote in the KC state newsletter from State Deputy Corey Christopher Coonen and thought it was very appropriate to share with you.
At times in years such as 2020, this simple task seems easy to overlook and forget. We weren’t told just to love those neighbors who agree with our viewpoints, but to love all. It seems as though too easily we come to ‘judge’ others based off of comments that they make or viewpoints that they have. In this year, it seems that we have division amongst our families, our friends and even within our Parish on issues and individuals in this highly tense politicized climate. Whatever happened to civility? Whatever happened to having discourse and dialogue with those of opposing viewpoints without ‘labeling’ or spewing hate rather than love and understanding?
With the elections coming up this next month please use one of your most important rights and get out and vote in this very important election.

For online degrees, Supreme has suspended scheduling online degrees, but does include the On Demand link, to take an online degree at the candidate’s convenience. The State officers are also providing regularly scheduled online degrees. See the Degree schedule page of the State website where you will find links for him to register for the state ceremonies. Candidates may do this at any time by using the On Demand link to the supreme ceremony and filling the registration form, and watching the ceremony in its entirety. It is encouraged that his family watch it with him (25-30 minutes). Here is the schedule and registration links for the upcoming state degree ceremonies.
