See below for family of the month listings.
The structure of the family is built on strength, faith and love. Strength comes from a bond of togetherness, experience and respect for one another. Families build a strong foundation of faith as they pray, attend Mass and spend time together.
The Supreme Council encourages every council to participate in the Order’s “Family of the Month” program. To take part a council selects a member and his family as its “Family of the Month” using the guidelines explained in the Family of the Month booklet (#1993) provided to each council in its “Surge …with Service” kit.
Items that your committee should look for (but not be restricted to) in their selections are:
- Has the family made significant contributions to the Church, community, and/or council?
- Does the family get along?
- Does the family share experiences?
- Does the family communicate openly and honestly?
- Does the family pray and attend Mass together?
On the 15th day of each month 100 Family of the Month reporting forms are randomly selected by the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council and the families chosen receive a Holy Family plaque. The “Family of the Month” program is an excellent way to recognize and support council families. Participate in the program and each month a brother knight and his family from your council will receive local honors and the chance to be a Supreme Council selection!
