FAMILY OF THE MONTH / YEAR
Families are the foundation upon which our Order was built. Father McGivney founded the Knights of Columbus to support the families of Catholic men. Because of the importance that the family holds for the Knights of Columbus, councils should regularly participate in the “Family of the Month” and family of the Year” program.
FAMILY OF THE MONTH
Each month a council should choose an exemplary K of C family to honor as the “Family of the Month”. This program offers a chance to recognize Council families for involvement with activities that make the Order proud. Get to know members better and report the selection of the Family of the Month to Supreme before the 15th of each month. Use the Supreme Council’s Form 1993A found on the Supreme Council’s website (https://www.kofc.org/un/en/officers/forms/council.html) to report the Council’s selection.
Each month Supreme selects 100 of the Family of the Month nominations received Order-wide to receive a special gift depicting the Holy Family. Take advantage of this no-cost opportunity to share the Council’s pride of those families who help make the Council programs
successful. Email copy of form to me.
FAMILY OF THE YEAR
At the end of the calendar year, each council should select the “Family of the Year” from the “Family of the Month” recipients for that year. The “Family of the Year” for each council is eligible for entry into the state council “Family of the Year” competition. Send the completed package to the State Family Chairman (not Supreme) by March 1, 2013 for consideration by the State Council in the selection of the State Family of the Year. The Family of the Year form can be found in the Family of the Month booklet (Form #1993) or be downloaded from the Supreme
Council’s website (https://www.kofc.org/un/en/resources/service/family/famofthemonth.pdf). This form requires additional documentation, so collect photographs, newspaper or newsletter articles or media recordings. The State Family of the Year is announced at the State Convention & will then be considered for the International Family of the Year award by the Supreme Council.
