Hello, from your new website committee. Under Dr. Luchi's tutelage, we are embarking on a challenging commitment. Dr. Luchi has done a marvelous job and left big shoes to fill. We will do our best. Like all change there is risk but also opportunity. The opportunity for the club is to involve more of our members who can contribute in new ways.
For our website communications to continue and flourish, it will require a few members to step up to help. Dr. Luchi has already asked for help with photography. We will also need help in providing some of the content that makes our website so appealing. Several more volunteers will keep the load lighter for all. We are not looking for technical/website savvy help, although that would be a bonus. We need someone who can provide an idea, article or write about a particular event they attended. If you are interested, please contact either of us.

President's letter for January 2018
While many of you are busy preparing for the coming season of Lent which begins on the 14th of this month I want to take this opportunity to look at the accomplishments of our club and many of our members during a busy month of January.
"A summer's day at St.Meinrad's Archabbey" is the latest "God Moment". This one is from Jim Wilson. You will find his and all "God Moments" here.
Because we all have God Moments in our lives we welcome a short telling of a God Moment from each KCK Serran. This kind of faith sharing is one way to deepen our spirituality.

Tanzania reaches out to Serra KCK
Our website has reached the Serra Club in the Diocese of Morogoro in Tanzania! Their bishop asked them to consider establishing a "Sister Relationship" with us, a young club reaching out to a more senior club for assistance in developing strong vocation activities. Our Board has agreed to explore this further as they receive more information from the Serra Club of Morogoro, Tanzania.
The Leaven recently published an article by Bill Scholl, archdiocesan consultant for social justice, on the value to parishes in following Archbishop Naumann's request to form "twinning" relationships with other parishes. Responding to the request of the Serra Club of Morogoro will result in benefits for them and for us.

Sister Servants of Mary invited us to a movie!
On Thursday, January 25th, the Sisters Servants of Mary celebrated their foundress, Saint Maria Soledad, by taking a group of over 500 to see a showing of the English language dubbed version of the recently released film about Saint Soledad. The standing room only crowd were also privileged to see a first-class relic of St. Soledad Archbishop Naumann attended and led the group in prayer following the film. DVD copies of the film were available afterwards. It was a very blessed and uplifting evening.
