Brother Knights and Sir Knights,
The month of March is dedicated to Joseph. The entire month falls during the liturgical season of Lent which is represented by the liturgical color purple — a symbol of penance, mortification, and the sorrow of a contrite heart. John Paul II further said, “Because St. Joseph is the protector of the Church, he is the guardian of the Eucharist and the Christian family. Therefore, we must turn to St. Joseph today to ward off attacks upon the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist and upon the family. We must plead with St. Joseph to guard the Eucharistic Lord and the Christian family during this time of peril.”
CONSECRATION TO HOLY FAMILY
Revitalize our parishes by urging our parish families to devote themselves to the ideal model of familial love set by Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. Invite each family in your parish to consecrate themselves to the Holy Family.
FOOD FOR FAMILIES
Help end hunger in communities that are struggling through hardship and unable to provide food to their families. Food for Families ensures that as few as possible go to bed hungry each night. We support this thru our Holy Cross St. Vincent de Paul.
FAMILY FULLY ALIVE
Help families place God and the Catholic faith at the center of their lives. Use the Family Fully Alive Booklet as a guide to provide monthly themes, reflections, meditations, and group projects.
FAMILY OF THE MONTH / YEAR
Promote and support the development of strong and vibrant families. Suggest families to recognize a deserving Family of the Month and Family of the Year with potential for recognition on the international level.
FAMILY PRAYER NIGHT
Strengthen the bonds within our parishes and build faith-filled families. This is an opportunity for the parish community to come together for an evening of prayer, dinner, and fellowship.
Dedicate a special week for our parish to celebrate family life. Activities will strengthen the parish community and affirm the central importance of Catholic family life.
GOOD FRIDAY FAMILY PROMOTION (APRIL 2, 2021)
Bring families into a more robust practice and better understanding of our Catholic faith and the Triduum. To increase parish attendance and involvement educate on the vital importance of Good Friday.
And so it is that COVID has restricted many of our activities with people outside of our household. However, as Soldiers of Christ the Knights of Columbus have a mission to protect our personal families and our parish families.
