2016 State Lottery

The young men and women who have responded to God’s Call
to a Religious Vocation are OUR HOPE for the FUTURE!

Each person’s vocation flows from the grace of Baptism.
It is God’s invitation, His call to each person to love and serve Him
and His Church in a particular state or way of life.

One mission of the Knights of Columbus is to support the sacrifices of our young men and women who have responded to God’s call to religious life. The Nebraska Knights of Columbus has faithfully contributed to their financial support through our Annual State Lottery. Increased participation in the State Lottery is vital to the continuation of this support. Your contribution of selling or purchasing these lottery tickets will support over 80 seminarians and many religious of Nebraska.

Illegal to Mail Tickets or Payments
To stay within the bounds of the law while conducting the Lottery, we need to transfer all lottery tickets, stubs, and ticket purchase proceeds by hand. It is illegal to mail the tickets, stubs, and proceeds – there is no exception. However, there is no restriction on advertising the Lottery through the mail.

Here’s How You Can Help
Distribution of the 2016 State Lottery tickets began when the tickets were given to the District Deputies at the Mid-Winter Meeting earlier this month. District Deputies will now distribute the materials to their respective councils. Please do your part by buying and selling as many as you can. All proceeds are deposited into the State Knights Vocation Fund and used to support the young men and women who have responded to God’s call to religious life. Ticket stubs, proceeds, and excess tickets will be collected at the April 2016 State Convention. Please pray that all Brother Knights in our great state do their part to help in this effort.
