My Brother Knights,
It is with deep sadness that on January 2, 2018 our State Secretary Antonio Vittorini was taken to be with the Lord. Our prayers are for Tony and his family.
The state council was in a position that has not been seen in Michigan with the sudden loss of a State Secretary, therefore the state council met, and according to the Charter Constitution Laws, section 58 completed its duties.
Elected as State Secretary – William H. Chasse – former State Treasurer. Elected as State Treasurer – Walter K. Winkle, Jr. – former State Advocate. Elected as State Advocate – Christopher A. Kolomjec – former State Warden. Elected as State Warden - Joseph R. Munie of Council #9301. These elected offices are effective immediately and will be in effect until the end of the current term of office.
The State Council is committed to work toward the success of the Michigan Jurisdiction and cohesiveness of the state council. The mentoring from each officer to the new officer is part of the overall success of the Michigan Jurisdiction for no man is an island, for we are a team.
The State Council is always in need of your prayers and the understanding of the importance of each link of the membership to succeed. We are in a new phase as to the induction of On-Line Membership, starting in Michigan in February 2018, Building the Domestic Church with bringing Catholics families back to the Eucharist each week.
Fraternally in Christ, Kenneth Unterbrink State Deputy
