August 2019 State Program Director’s Message

Brother Knights:

Faith in Action Program Model

  • Let us make implementing Faith in Action a top priority in our councils.
  • Work with your Chaplains/Priests.
  • A great quote on how we should look at our Faith in Action programs – “Faith in the Family brings Life to the Community”.
  • To be eligible for the Columbian Award – each program category has one required program that a council must conduct. These programs can be done at any time of the fraternal year.
  • To find up-to-date information about all Faith in Action programs, general announcements and form updates, check out the website at www.kofc.org/faithinaction.
  • The link for Building the Domestic Church: The Family Fully Alive is https://www.kofc.org/un/en/domestic-church/

Supreme Forms – Please Submit These Important Annual Forms:

  • Form 365 – Service Program Personnel Report – due August 1.
  • Form 1295 – Semi-annual Council Audit Report – due August 15.
  • Forms are available and can be downloaded from the Supreme website kofc.org/forms. Please review and get familiar with the newly revised forms.

2019-2020 Program Reporting Form Change

  • All councils are required to start using Form 10784 – Fraternal Programs Report Form in reporting your council Fraternal programs. This form replaces the Council Activity Program Description Form. Complete Form 10784 soon after you have finished a Supreme or State program.
  • Form 10784 is available on www.kofc.org and www.kofcsask.com websites.
  • Please email a copy of this document to fraternalmission@kofc.org and to programs@kofcsask.com.
  • Thank you for your cooperation in this change. One less form to fill out.

  • Safe Environment Program – the requirement for 4 positions:
  • Grand Knight – training
  • Program Director – training
  • Family Director – training and background check
