Greetings...The recommended Faith programs from Supreme (listed below), are provided to help us be the Catholic leader that God intends us to be.
Beginning this month, and for the next two months, we will take a closer look at each program:
RSVP…all donations to a seminarian, $500 or greater, are eligible for the RSVP program. In addition to the two activity credits received for an RSVP program, Supreme will refund $100 for each $500...(more info HERE at Supreme's site)
Rosary Program….October is a great month to lead a Rosary in the Church, inviting all parishioners, maybe before or after Mass. Remember the Rosary Coast to Coast, October 7th… http://rosarycoasttocoast.com.
Spiritual Reflection…this required program, to earn the Columbian award, is about deepening our faith life, taking time away from everyday activities and focusing on Jesus, the Church and how we can be better Fathers, Husbands, Knights and Parishioners…ask your Priest to facilitate a half day retreat, or invite your council to attend one of the many Men’s Conferences in Indiana such as:
- 11/10/18 Lions Breathing Fire – Indianapolis
- 2/2/19 Catholic Men’s Conference of Western KY – Owensboro, KY
- 2/16/19 Rekindle the Fire – Fort Wayne
- 2/23/19 E6 Conference – St. Leon
The complete Faith in Action Guidebook is available for your review at: https://www.kofc.org/un/en/forms/programs/10590-%20Faith%20in%20Action%20Guidebook.pdf
Also, there are many Faith activities (examples) for councils that make a difference in lives of many such as:
- Seminarian Dinners…a fundraiser that can help you meet your RSVP goal.
- Seminarian cards/letters of appreciation/encouragement…our Seminarians have returned to the Seminary…please consider having your council write notes or cards to the young men, or coordinate an effort with your Parish Religious Education department and have the children send notes.
- Race for Vocations…What an awesome way for the Knights to support Vocations in front of over 30,000 people at the Mini Marathon, Indy. See the Race for Vocations tab on the web site which includes why Race for Vocations, the schedule, how your council may help. Please contact me to discuss or with questions..
Vivat Jesus and God bless you!
