  30. Bishop Zurek thanks you for your support in the past and is relying on your continued support for his Continuing Spirituality Training for Priests and Seminarians Program.

  31. How can you support your Bishop? • Include a line item in your budget that will fully support Bishop Zurek’s program.

  32. Does anyone have? 3 pennies… 2 dimes… 3 quarters, 1 nickel, 3 pennies… $10.00…

  33. Why don’t our Councils give?

  34. Top ten reasons Councils don’t give: #10 “We have a hall to pay for.” The hall should pay for itself.

  35. Top ten reasons Councils don’t give: # 9 “We work too hard for this money to give it to State.” You are supporting your Bishop’s needs, not the State Council.

  36. Top ten reasons Councils don’t give: # 8 “We need this for our own Parish needs.” Your Council is no exception.

  37. Top ten reasons Councils don’t give: # 7 “We don’t get any benefit from contributing to State.” You are not giving to the State, but supporting your Bishop’s needs…this benefits all.

  38. Top 10 reasons Councils don’t give #6 “It is not a requirement for Star Council.” Charity is not about getting something in return … it is from the heart.

  39. Top 10 reasons Councils don’t give #5 “The only reason to give is to get awards.” You don’t do it for the reward, but it is nice to hear “Thank you.”

  40. Top 10 reasons Councils don’t give #4 “We don’t like our Bishops designation and we would rather use our money differently.” The Knights are in solidarity with their Bishops.

  41. Top 10 reasons Councils don’t give #3 “We have too many delinquent members.” Your strong leadership and dedication is needed to build a stronger Council.

  42. Top 10 reasons councils don’t give #2 College and Seminary Councils can’t have fund raisers. • This is were the diocese can come together to make their goal for them. • Your charity pins could go to that council, TODAY

  43. And the number One reason that councils don’t give…….. #1 “We are a poor council.” Your efforts as a leader will make a difference!

  44. What is your job? • Your job is to lead your council to find ways to raise the funds necessary to support all of your programs. • Be creative and innovative.

  45. GOALS 102% Thank you

  46. You are Leaders • Not Dictators

  47. “Faith without works is useless … For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead.” James 2:20-26
