2021 Religious Information Bureau (RIB)...

At the 118th Missouri State Convention in 2019, a new RIB program was  announced. The new program consists of grants provided to each of our four Diocese’s to enhance their evangelistic efforts. The new opportunities for the Dioceses to bring enhanced faith programs to their parishioners has been overwhelmingly well received.





Our Goal - $285,000...

With the new program aligned to the four Dioceses in our State, we have had great financial support the first year that the program changed. We need everyone’s help even more than ever so we don’t let our Church down. We continue to ask:

  • Each Council to assign a quota of $7.50 per member
  • Each Auxiliary is asked to give $3.75
  • Each Assembly is asked to generously support this program

With 100% participation from the roughly 43,000 Knights in Missouri, we could raise $322,500, not to mention the additional from all of the Ladies Auxiliaries as well. Appeal letters will still be going out so any Knight that wants to give more than their quota of $7.50 may generously do so.
