Mike Courtney Dallas Diocesan Deputy opens meeting.

Diocese of Dallas - Organizational Conference 7-22-23

WSD Terry,

I am pleased to let you know that the Diocese of Dallas completed our Diocesan Conference this past Saturday. The Conference was hosted by Council 11862 St. Michael The Archangel in Garland. We had in excess of 100 Brother Knights in attendance. Breakdown:

  • 2 Members of the Clergy, Fr. Rudy Garcia, the Diocesan Chaplain of the Year for 2022-23 and Deacon Palmer in his final year of Diaconate before Ordination in May 2024.
  • 32 Grand Knights
  • 19 DGK
  • 14 Financial Secretary’s
  • 12 District Deputies
  • 4 Asst. Diocesan Deputies
  • 7 State Program Representatives

Worthy State Secretary on Alonzo did an excellent job presenting the State’s Program’s for the 2023-24 Fraternal Year! Thank you Ron for your leadership and presentation. Our Diocesan Team did an outstanding job presenting our plans ranging from Membership, RSVP, Safe Environment and everything in between. Our GA John Regan spoke on the continued need for open communication between FA’s and Councils as well as needing additional recommendations for prospective FA’s.

I believe that the troops came out of the meeting charged up and excited about the plans for the Diocese, the State and the Order!

Last but certainly not least, thank you to the great team here in the Diocese of Dallas for everything you did to make this meeting and all that goes on throughout the Diocese a success. Without your leadership and support, this could not have happened!

Vivat Jesus,

SK Mike Courtney
Diocesan Deputy – Diocese of Dallas
