From our State Deputy:

My Brothers,

As we enter into Holy Week and prepare to celebrate the joy of Easter, attached is the

Catholic Spiritual Communion Service at Home and related instructions for Palm Sunday.  

Building upon our Faith in Action and Domestic Church programs, the liturgy is offered as a means of continuing Sunday worship within the confines of your home for both yourself and your family.

The home service offers an opportunity for parents to be prayer leaders in their own families.  Other family members are encouraged to participate through readings, common responses and devotions.  It is not meant to be a substitute for participation in a traditional Sunday liturgy and Mass, but is provided as a temporary means of renewing our commitment to the Lord and His table each week until such time as regular Masses resume.

During these uncertain times please DO avail yourself of televised Masses and worship services, especially if "virtual" Masses are being offered by the parish you regularly attend.  Please DO continue to support your parish financially with a weekly offering through online giving or conventional mail.  Please DO reach out to help those in need while being conscientious about protecting your own health and that of your family.

The  Catholic Spiritual Communion Service at Home currently has USCCB approval through April 15 at which time reapplication will be made should there be a continued need.

May God bless,

Dave Abbott, State Deputy

Knights of Columbus, California State Council

Surgical Mask Making Directions

Instructions for sewing the masks are provided below. This is a CDC compliant design the use of which has been approved by area providers.


Be sure to use fabric that is 100% cotton (tightly woven for the front, flannel or other soft 100% cotton for the back). If you have any doubts about the content of your fabric, please do not use it.


Please prewash all fabric on hot and dry on high heat. This step is to ensure pre-shrinkage. Area providers will sanitize the masks.


You will note the instructions involve the use of elastic. If that is not available, you can use fabric ties (self-made ties, twill tape), one in each of the four corners. Each tie should have a finished length of 18 inches. The link below titled Detailed Sewing Instructions with Pictures outlines how to make fabric ties.
