Building the Domestic Church While Strengthening Our Parishes
Introduced by our Supreme Knight in late 2015, this initiative can help your council attract younger, enthusiastic Catholic men AND their families. This, indeed, is the ‘shot-in-the-arm’ needed by our Order and your councils to prosper and for our parishes to set forth on the New Evangelization. Some programs have been defined and others will be forthcoming.Link to the Initiative: http://www.kofc.org/un/en/domestic-church/index.html
Knowing that vital changes first require changes from within, the initiative’s devotional programs are listed below. Participate in one of these to prepare for the Charlotte Catholic Men’s Conference.
The Family Fully Alive
Our families can achieve their purpose through prayer, devotions and practical activities. Link to the Program:
And while we’re on the subject of families, arrange with your pastor to have a Renewal of Marriage Vows at Mass on Fathers Day in June!
Fathers for Good
While “The Family Fully Alive” focuses on family dynamics, this devotional is to help YOU as a father and husband and even as a grandfather or uncle. Be sure and see the segment “You can keep your kids Catholic”.
NEW! Into the Breach
This was presented as a college study program but you’ll find it useful in discerning how to become a true man of Faith and a man of action in a world which continually confronts your Christian beliefs and values.
But don’t forget our ‘traditional’ Family Life Programs such as …… Family of the Month!
Honor Faith-inspired families! Submit the form 1993A on line by the 15th of each month to Supreme and send a copy to us and the state council. Supreme will pick one or more of our entries to recognize every month.
Council can also submit a candidate to the State Council for NC Family of the Year
Food for Families
People will still be hungry when you read this. Participation satisfies all Family requirements for the Columbian Award.
