Executive Director of the Sask KofC Charitable Foundation and the Sask State Executive Secretary

We are pleased to announce that Brother Gerry Gieni has accepted the Contract Office Services opportunity for Executive Director of the Sask KofC Charitable Foundation and the Sask State Executive Secretary commencing April 1st.

Brother Gerry will be taking over from Brother Bob Barkman who will be retiring April 30, 2017. They will be working together for the month of April making for a smooth transition.

Brother Gerry is well suited for the challenges given his 34 years as a 3rd Degree and 32 years as a 4th Degree Knight of Columbus, recently retiring from a lengthy career as an executive manager, including the last 21 years serving as the chief financial officer with the Moose Jaw Catholic School Board.

Brother Gerry has served the Father Lawless Council #1534, Moose Jaw in most Officer positions and is a Past Grand Knight. Currently he is a CO with the Sask State Ceremonials Team (3rd Degree Team) and DGK on the Council Admission Degree Team. He is also presently the Financial Secretary for the Father Lawless Council #1534 and Faithful Navigator for the Dr. J. M. Hourigan Assembly #1960, Moose Jaw.

For the time being please continue to use the current Saskatoon telephone numbers, email addresses and mailing address. Announcements and details will be provided as we progress with moving the office to Moose Jaw.

Please welcome Brother Gerry to our Sask KofC Team and Thank Brother Bob for his many years of dedicated and loyal service.

God Bless
