Iowa bishops and KC leaders appoint assistant state chaplains

Fr. Reynolds

Father William Reynolds, pastor of Sacred Heart Parish in Newton, has been named assistant state chaplain for the Iowa Knights of Columbus for the Diocese of Davenport.
Fr. Reynolds is a member of the Msgr. T.J. McCann Council 2663 in Newton and Sir Knight of Bishop William L. Adrian Assembly 1941 in Grinnell.
The four Iowa bishops, Knights of Columbus State Deputy Joseph Ramirez and State Chaplain Father Brian Danner named assistant state chaplains for each diocese.
The other three assistant state chaplains are Father John “Jack” Paisley for the Archdiocese of Dubuque, Father William McCarthy for the Diocese of Sioux City and Father Christopher Reising for the Diocese of Des Moines.
“Each assistant state chaplain brings a wealth of experience in parish and diocesan life as well as a passion for the Knights of Columbus,” said Fr. Danner.
The assistant state chaplains will assist Fr. Danner in developing an understanding and appreciation of the Knights of Columbus spirituality surrounding its principles: charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism. They will also develop and maintain strong working and informational relationships with local council chaplains in their diocese.
