OF SPANISH SPEAKING PARISH ROUND TABLES
There are no elected officers in
a Round Table. The appointed coordinator is the only designated
leader. The Spanish Speaking Parish Round Table coordinator should
provide the leadership needed to carry on the projects assigned to them.
The coordinator of the Spanish
Speaking Parish Round Table should visit the parish priest frequently
(monthly is suggested) to discuss various projects for Spanish
speaking Knights. When a project requires more support than the
Spanish Speaking Parish Round Table members can provide, the
coordinator should solicit council members for support and
assistance. The Spanish Speaking Parish Round Table projects are
council projects. The coordinator must communicate with the Grand
Knight and the council should make sure that the projects of the
Spanish Speaking Parish Round Table are successful.
Brief but regular meetings may
be required of the members of the round table in order to coordinate
the projects assigned by the parish priest to the Spanish Speaking
Parish Round Table.
Dues and Funds
The Spanish Speaking Parish
Round Table has no dues. Members continue to meet their financial
obligations to the council. All funds raised by the Spanish Speaking
Parish Round Table must be kept by the sponsoring council. As with
any expenditure, the sponsoring council must approve all necessary
expenses of the Spanish Speaking Parish Round Table.
Review and Appointments
The Grand Knight and the parish
priest should annually review the activities of the Spanish Speaking
Parish Round Table and the effectiveness of its coordinator.
If the pastor desires a change
of coordinator, or if the coordinator resigns during the fraternal
year, the pastor can select a new coordinator and the Grand Knight
will make the appointment.
REPORTING SPANISH SPEAKING
PARISH ROUND TABLE ACTIVITIES
Each year, the coordinator of the Spanish
Speaking Parish Round Table should complete the Annual
Report of the Knights of Columbus Round Table
(Form #2630) secure the signature of the Grand Knight and pastor.
This report should be submitted to the Supreme Secretary with copies
to the state and district deputies by June 30th.
