Dear Jim

cant make it as I will be coming from pismo beach which is even farther than Irvine.

I am tendering my resignation as trustee and asking for a signed form 4 so I can change assembly. I have called supreme to talk to supreme master. I find it unacceptable the way Jim Heil was dealt with and the way our assembly has been treated by supreme..

who wants to work with barry, jean hays or steve bolton?

I feel sorry for the state leaders, there ignorance, not knowing what they are doing,
 based on out of control State Officer Steve Bolton.
A origination suppose to support the Catholic Church, with no regard for the damage they have done,
Stephen Bolton )
"stand ready to place formal charges on all of them, ask our State Deputy to Summary Suspend all of them."
to one of the oldest Assemblies ( 52 years ) in the USA.

    Romeo D. Quevedo  - State D.D.   
    Lawrance G. Campitiello -  V.S.M     
    Steve Bolton -  Advocate
Disrespects to
a Roman Catholic order of knighthood under the protection of the Holy See.
    The Pope is sovereign of the Order.

Disrespecting all 10 of my Brother Chair Offices .
There is no excuse for your thoughtless actions

E-Mail just show how self-righteous, Steve and upper officers think they are, totally out of control . Self-righteous
 confident of one's own righteousness, especially when smugly moralistic & intolerant of the opinions and behavior of others.

 State wanted to replace Jim Heil with a Comptroller of there choosing, per a recorded phone conversation,
 heard by all officers during the Assembly officers meeting  Feb. 26 7:30 P.M.,
 Assembly  F.N. appointed a P.F.N. & Past comptroller to the position, per our bylaws.

Gene Hays brings Barry Crawley, to Mar. 8 general meeting to replace Jim Heil,
Barry had not attended a assembly meeting for 3 years, Gene said " it was a Coincidence "Barry showed up.
   TOO LATE , the entire assembly saw that move coming,
control assembly funds, restore face after forced to remove Barry from office March 12, 2015
This proves the state leadership is total out of control.

What a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.

2003, I found the books were altered when helping Roy Sapp ( Purser ) understand the bookkeeping mess Barry made. 
At that time thousands were missing from the assembly account and the account number were changed each year, to break the QuickBook audit trail. 
Ever since Barry has tried to discredit the finding & system I started as Comptroller in 2004 still in use today.
Barry changing the latest audit ( 2014 ) numbers to find fault,
 Harassed the Comptroller & Purser with a useless number systems to control & embarrass them. 
Barry has a problem understanding basic Account procurers and written instruction. 

Barry, 2yr Trustee 2014-2015, changed expense forms data, not allowed by the elected comptroller.
He took a private,  month long Audit,  making changes with his limited knowledge of account,
made a $7,000.00 error,
didn't read the instructions,
  SCHEDULE C- ASSETS AND LIABILITIES, Per capita Doesn’t apply to assemblies.
Gene Hays was pressured by assembly members,  to remove him from office
several men gave testimonial against Barry, and not one supported him , witnessed by Chaplin Fr Janze  March 12, 2015, 7:00 PM.
{ see 1 below }

Racism against the Vietnamese members. A very serious charge, ignored by state officers. 
" Why did the Vietnamese F.N. & Comptroller resigned mid term - 2014 " To show unity against Barry. 
My brother-in-law, Vietnamese, resigned  as trustee.
Jim Heil started the first Vietnamese council west of the Mississippi.
 { see 2 below }

Barry is the author of the embellishment cover-up in 2003 with Barry's  GET WELL DEPOSIT, not reported to Supreme.
 of this reconciliation ‘hokey-pokey’ ( Barry's words )  evident through the Quickbook Pro reconciliation status 6/30/03,
Several still active, members put personal money to help recover the Assembly financial worth.

Due to the change in location, it is out of the service area of Assembly 85.
Suggest you contact the local Assembly and ask for Chalice service,  they can use a blank Chalice for the service.
Assembly 085 does have an engraved Chalice for Daniel Morgan, and will send directly to a Priest of the family choice.
Our policy is not to allow Chalices out of our direct control, no exceptions.
Daniel Morgan is not an active member of Assembly 85 and has not paid into the the Chalice service for over 2 years.

This is really good then so I only need to send out one email for all of you. I was hoping I would not have to remind all of you of my other job this year with the Knights as the State Advocate but its your call.  

Worthy Vice Supreme Master and Worthy Master

These Brothers actions are in violation  of the rules of the order Chapter XVIII section 162 item # 7 Giving Scandal.

See example below. 

Giving Scandal 7. Giving scandal, scandalous conduct or practice unbecoming a member of this Order; suspension or expulsion.

 All of them are practicing unbecoming a member of the Knights of Columbus. I will be reaching out to the State office in the morning to get all of there contact information and stand ready to place formal charges on all of them and ask our State Deputy to Summary Suspend all of them until this matter is completed. Only with your approval. Please let me know how you would like me to move forward.  

Yours in Service

The last Audit Berry, he just can add numbers
Did a month long Audit trying to make change 















$ 7,000  /  by 116 members = $ 60.34   our dues are $ 25.00
$ 7,000 is 70 % loss of the year income based on the year budget.
From Barry E-Mail
As to the other changes in Schedule C, since I did not have the Faithful Comptrollers Handbook with me during the meeting, I was not able to defend some of the numbers that were being viewed for removal in the Schedule C part of the Audit report.  The numbers in Schedule C relative to the
'Dues from 116 Members' totaling $7000 REALLY are supposed to be included according to the following instructions from pages 43-44 of the Handbook, AND they were included on the last Audit with numbers 109 and $3815.
This section will provide insight as to the financial condition of the council. From audit period to audit period it will indicate the council’s financial progress— or lack of it—and where necessary will enable the
trustees, state and district deputies, and the Supreme Council office to obtain a true picture of the council’s financial status..
However, in reviewing previous audits it is apparent that some councils include figures in this schedule that are not applicable to the audit period.
  This is particularly true relative to Due Supreme Council: Per capita in
the   -------------------------Liabilities column and Due from members in the Assets column. It appears that some councils are including as a liability the Supreme Council per capita levy for the period following the one for which the audit is being conducted.
For example, if an audit is being made for the period ending December 31, then the Supreme Council levy for January of the following year should not be shown on the Per capita line as a liability since the audit is for the period just completed.
  However, should that January levy not be paid by June 30, it would be included on the next audit. (Doesn’t apply to assemblies.)  ------------------

Regarding the Due from members line… This refers to dues owed and payable to the council. Such moneys are considered assets, but not yet collected. These moneys remain assets until such time as the member(s) are removed from the roles. If the financial secretary follows proper billing procedures, he will have sent the First Notices at least 15 days prior to the start of the period.
Entries are not to be made for those members being billed for the following period. To avoid confusion, billing notices should be dated as of the first of the month of the start of the period (January 1 or July 1) not the date the
bills are being prepared. However, should any portion of the bill remain unpaid into the next audit period, that portion is to be included on the ensuing Audit Report.

When a member is suspended or takes a withdrawal, the amount he owes appears on the Audit Report for the period in which he was suspended only. His ledger should be deleted from the council file on or before the end of the period in which he was removed. This procedure will help to ensure that a billing notice is not produced during the next billing period and eliminates the carryover from one period to another of uncollectible dues or other charges on members who have been removed from the roles.

It started with my wife's brother-in-law one year ago during the annual assembly audit 2014. 
If you’re looking for the one word, time, a place and witnessed, you’re sadly missing the problem. 

The recent place was at Holy Spirit Church, March 12, 7:00 PM present was our Chaplain Fr John Janze, the Master, Gene Hays and members of the Assembly. 
Before the meeting, Fr John Janze asked for comments from the member and witnessed, several men gave testimonial against Barry, and not one supported him. 
Barry went in to a full melt down against his brother Knights as witnessed by our Chaplain Fr John Janze, Gene Hays and members of the Assembly. 

That alone is enough to remove him as a disruptive member of the assembly. 
This Issue involves action of Barry against the entire Assembly, not only the Vietnamese. 
Barry should have been removed or at least placed on suspension at that meeting

It turned into a bookkeeping / audit witch hunt. Asking what programs we are using in bookkeeping, it hasn't change since 2004.

Someone keeps thinking this is a bookkeeping audit issue. 
Supreme can request at any time and audit the books by a paid CPA. 
10 years ago, I found the books were altered when helping Roy Sapp ( Purser ) understand the bookkeeping mess Barry made. 
At that time thousands were missing from the assembly account and the account number were changed each year to break the QB audit trail. 
Ever since Barry has tried to discredit the finding & system I started as Comptroller in 2004 still in use today.
Barry changing the latest audit ( 2014 ) numbers to find fault, Harassed the Comptroller & Purser with a useless number systems to control & embarrass them. 
Barry has no education in bookkeeping or business experience. 
Barry has a problem understanding basic Account procurers and written instruction. 

1:: letter to the master July 25 : letter to master first request for help and note : brash action during this audit, 1 year trustee Hong Ngo resigned. dated July 25, 2014
2: audit errors: An E-Mail from Barry to the Master claiming his $ 7,000.00 find is the eureka moment, however the SCHEDULE C — ASSETS AND LIABILITIES he is using "does not apply to Assemblies" 
3:Barry can't read : same as above but with ramblings of unrelated information. 
4: email july 28 : requesting Barry to return the books 
5: get-well deposits ; PAGE 2 --- this reconciliation ‘hokey-pokey’ that was evident through the QuickBooks Pro reconciliation status done for 6/30/03, : 
6: get-well deposits PAGE 4 covering up loss funds in his bookkeeping procurers done for 6/30/03.
7: Proper bookkeeping as required by Supreme Council, computer not needed. as it was for 40 years before Barry.
    I will request the Assembly have an outside CPA Audit the books, after our next officers meeting March 23. 

I only remain for the good of the order, but in protest.
My resignation is available upon request. 
You can recover this mess, only if you do as requested.
Barry is to be transferred from this assembly, now.
Removed and barred from all Assembly 085 functions.

Figure 1 shows that the year started with a $275 Deposit SHORTAGE

Figure 1 shows that during the year, another $1861.50 Deposit SHORTAGE accumulated

Figure 1 shows that as of 30Aug03, there was $2136.50 in ‘Deposit Shortages (credit memos)’ for Deposit packages that had already CLEARED the Bank (less the CM shortages) and that on 02Sep03 deposits were in fact made that accounted for ALL but $22 of these credit memos.  THIS $22 WILL BE recorded as a LOSS subsequent to 30Jun03.  The Deposit Shortages ranged in being late from 89 to 390 days (see Figure 1) and clearly indicate that a monthly reconciliation with the Bank Statements was either NOT being done or being IGNORED.

During the process of the Audit, the records required by Supreme were either missing or inaccurate and the Quickbook Pro Database became the ‘baseline reference’ for the actual deposits against the Bank statements, as opposed to the receipts between Comptroller and Purser.  The Warrant Vouchers and Vouchers were used to validate the actual expenses entered into Quickbook Pro, both were in sync and used for the Supreme report.

Based on the best data available, the attached AUDIT Report for Supreme, Figure 3, is hereby submitted and uses the actuals from the Quickbook Pro Database (and Vouchers), in spite of the ‘Deposit Shortages.  This is because ALL the ‘Deposit Shortages’, ALL but $22, were made ‘current’ on 02Sep03, and these will ‘flush’ through the system with the reconciliation of the OPP MMF Bank Statement for period ending 30Sep03.  The only compensating entry to be made in the database will be for the $22 LOSS and a Voucher will be submitted for this correction!.

The attached Figure 1 SUMMARY SHEET shows the timeline of deposits and the accumulation of discrepancies from ‘Credit Memos’ that were NOT deposited along with the other checks of the respective deposits with which each CM was associated.

Three UN-ACCOUNTABLE Balancing Adjustments were made in the Quickbook Pro Books that transferred funds from ‘Retained Earnings’ to the OPP MMF Checking account at the close of the last three six month ‘audit’ windows.  These were as follows:

















Upon analyzing the ‘reason’ for these entries, it appears that the entry of these ‘adjustments’ enabled the period-ending reconciliation of the ‘Balance’ with the Bank Statements WITH SOME NUMBER OF THE LAST DEPOSITS being shown as NOT YET CLEARED, when in fact some of MOST of them had.  It is surmised that the ‘adjustment’ was an enabler for the ‘deposit shortages’ to equal the sum of the supposedly NOT YET CLEARED deposits.

From Figure 2, one can see some of this reconciliation ‘hokey-pokey’ that was evident through the Quickbook Pro reconciliation status done for 6/30/03, as evidenced by the following:


Bobby Velasquez - E-Mail Steve , wants this assembly flags, our flags were in parades long before Bobby was around.
The flags were never given to Ernie O'Leary by this assembly. Ernie browed the flags from this assembly.

I Later moved the flags to my place of business.
These bags are clearly labeled in gold print ( K of C Assy 85 ) , long time members can verifier this.

This is way they can take money & flags from this well organized Assembly,  I Protected all assets for years.

It is like the buzzards coming in for the kill now that Jim Heil is gone."

Canada's Salt & Light TV will cover the convention events live to its audience of over two million people in Canada alone, and tens of thousands of people the world over viewing the live streaming on the Salt and Light website, providing English and French-language reports by Basilian Father Thomas Rosica and a team of correspondents.  S&L will cover all three days of this year's Supreme Convention

EWTN Radio will also broadcast live from the convention site and provide live audio of the opening Mass and business session.  EWTN is carried on many independent Catholic radio stations around the United States, as well as via streaming audio on the Internet.

Boston-based CatholicTV returns for its third year of broadcast coverage to its national audience. News anchor Kevin Nelson will provide live reports, activities and interviews from the convention site throughout the opening day's events. Catholic TV is now available on selected cable systems around the United States.
All three TV outlets will broadcast Men of Faith Who Made a Difference: The Knights of Columbus. This new hour-long documentary chronicles the history of its 127-year history and profiles several of its prominent members and charitable initiatives.

calledtoloveCOVER(NEW HAVEN, CONN.) - In 1979, Pope John Paul II, drawing from the whole of the Catholic tradition, introduced to the Church and the rest of the world his "theology of the body," a rich presentation of the Church's teaching on the relationship between spirituality and the physical body.

In Called to Love: Approaching John Paul II's Theology of the Body (Doubleday Religion, on sale 4/14/09, $24.00), New York Times best-selling author Carl Anderson and Father José Granados build upon these teachings and further examine the tremendous gift they offer.

"Christianity is itself the fullness of love," says Anderson. He continues that the experience of love in all its different forms is worth understanding, enabling Catholics to rediscover the full treasure of this Christian tradition and integrate it into daily life.

Anderson and Granados teach that the human body beholds wonder and mystery that teaches people about love in its purest form, and that it speaks of God revealing His goodness. It also speaks of men and women and the innate human desire to love. The summary of these teachings gives a new understanding of the Christian way of love, how it directly intersects with faith and how to embrace both faith and love fully in life.

Carl Anderson is supreme knight of the Knights of Columbus and vice president of the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.

Father José Granados is Assistant Professor of Patrology and Systematic Theology at the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and  Family at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C.

Pope receives Supreme Knight and Supreme Chaplain at the Vatican

Pope Benedict XVI received Supreme Knight Carl Anderson and Supreme Chaplain Bishop William Lori in a private audience at the Vatican on Thursday, December 6, 2007.
 On behalf of the 1.7 million members of the Knights of Columbus, Supreme Knight Anderson presented His Holiness with a gift of $1.6 million, representing this year’s earnings from the Order’s Vicarius Christi Fund, which was established in 1981.
 Over the past 25 years, the fund has provided more than $43 million to the Vicar of Christ for his personal charities and causes.


Pope Benedict XVI, on Oct. 17, announced the elevation two K of C members to the College of Cardinals:
Archbishops John P. Foley and Daniel N.DiNardo. The Cardinals-designate will join 21 other churchmen in receiving their red hats and rings during a Nov. 24 consistory in Rome

Cardinal-designate Foley is a Pennsylvania native and member of Our Lady of Lourdes Council 4546 in Philadelphia. He was recently named pro-grand master of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem after serving for 23 years as the president of the Pontifical Council for Social Communications.

Cardinal-designate DiNardo was born in Steubenville, Ohio, and was ordained a priest for the Diocese of Pittsburgh. He is a former bishop of Sioux City, Iowa, and was installed as archbishop of Galveston-Houston in 2004. He is a member of Father Vincent Joseph Guinan Council 13940 at the University of St. Thomas in Houston.

Cardinal-designate Francisco Robles Ortega, native of Mascota, Mexico, is a member of Santa Martha Council 14098 in Monterrey. He was ordained in 1976 and served as auxiliary bishop and bishop of the Diocese of Toluca before being appointed archbishop of Monterrey in 2003.
