Petition for Pope Francis's Laudato Sii

We prayed the prayer for an authentic human ecology at the end of our meeting on Monday, and now I get in my email an online petition calling for the attention of the world's leaders on an authentic human ecology. This concept, blending Catholic Pro-Life, Catholic Social Teaching, and environmental teachings together, began under Pope Benedict XVI and is continuing quite strongly under Pope Francis. I urge you to consider signing. Ted Seeber, Past Charter Grand Knight.

    It is an honor to be elected as Grand Knight. Nice things said about PGK Ted Seeber. We are still a young council, this is a pivotal year. GK am optimistic. Remarks made about the Knights Leadership Conference in Salem. We are a visible arm of the Catholic Church. We carry a big responsibility. We can have a big effect on our council, churches, and the population as a whole. Please read what your job is and what you are supposed to be. I have historically not been a good leader. I will try to be a good leader for this council. At this workshop I would like to recognize Dave Saunders for DD getting 178% of quota. Polinus answered a lot of questions, won a tie. I want to emphasize Charity, Unity and Fraternity. We want to help our parishes and help ourselves. A pivotal year where we can really make a difference. Star Council requirements were brought up. Oregon Baptism Pin Program was brought up. GK challenge you to ask one man a month to join.
