Most reverend Clergy members, Worthy State Officers, Worthy State Family Members, and Brother Knights,

Mark Twain once said, “Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the things you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” My name is Kerry Williams, Jr, I am the new Squires Chairman for the 2014-2015 fraternal year. Thank you Worthy State Deputy, Vernon Ducote, for appointing me to this position. I would also like to thank my predecessor, George Martin, for his work as Squires Chairman for the last 4 years. He did an exemplary job! I hope to continue his good works as well as expand the Squires program. It is my fervent belief that without the squires program, The Knights of Columbus will surely die because squires are knights-in-training.


Over the past 32 years, I have coached and mentored youth through sports and after-school programs. My years of coaching has afforded me expertise in youth programming. I have been involved with the squires program for 14 years. My vision for this program is for it to fully encompass its creed of spirituality, intelligence, civic-mindedness, and physicality. With the help of the Committeemen I have selected, I am confident that we can elevate the program to new heights in membership and participation. I have many ideas for new programs and activities. For example, this year we will begin the year with CSLS (Columbian Squires Leadership Seminar) patterned after KCLS to ensure squires and counselors understand how to do their jobs effectively. For more information regarding the Squires program, state circle events or contact information visit the State Circle website at http://www.lasquires.org/


I look forward to working with the state officers, committeemen, counselors, and the squires and their families to keep the program moving forward to new heights because I know the power of teamwork. This endeavor will not be without its challenges but it is my vow to give it my all. So, as Mark Twain said, let’s dare to dream an awesome vision of increased activities, membership, and squires becoming knights. Let’s explore together those avenues that will make the vision a reality and discover the joy of helping more young men along their path of reaching their full potential.




ESTO DIGNUS!


Kerry T. Williams, Jr

Worthy State Officers, State Committeemen, Knights and Squires,

As the newly elected Louisiana State Chief Squire I am excited to begin this new fraternal year and introduce myself to you. I am Mathew Massey from Circle 5346 at St. Anthony of Padua Parish in Houma, Louisiana. I have grown in my faith and developed leadership skills during my two years as Notary of my Circle, and the past year I served as State Sentry. I am also a past Jr. Squire of the Year award winner. I find joy in serving my community and the church in many activities, including being an Altar Server. I am blessed to be homeschooled, along with my sister and two brothers, and will be in 7th grade this new school year.


Since my election at the Squires State Convention on June 1st, I have thought and prayed about the goals for this fraternal year. I have two goals for the Squires this year: 1) I want to grow our Circles, not just in number, but also to inspire increased activity of our current members. 2) I want to continue to cultivate a close relationship between the Squires and the Knights. I have many ideas on how to accomplish these goals, but the first step will be to attend as many Knights of Columbus and Squires events as possible.


These goals will be in mind during the Squires State Planning Meeting which will be held on July 27th. During this meeting we will be planning state wide events that focus on the building of fraternity among the squires and the service of our community. We will also be holding Columbian Squires Leadership Seminars (CSLS) during the month of August in four locations: New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Lafayette, and Alexandria. These seminars are meant to inspire and guide our squires, working toward one of my main goals.


In closing I ask you to walk along side me this year and to keep not only me, but all Squires and the Knights who work closely with us, in your prayers.



ESTO DIGNUS!

Mathew F. Massey
State Chief Squire
