A Higher Purpose
Dedicate a week to celebrate our families. Councils plan a special week for their parish celebrating family life. Activities presented in this program will strengthen the parish community and affirm the central importance of Catholic family life.
Knights of Columbus councils will dedicate a special week of the year to recognize the vital importance of families as the foundation of our domestic church and to promote Catholic family values. When choosing a week, councils should consider factors that might affect parishioner schedules such as school vacations, holidays and other local events.
Though traditionally celebrated in the summer to commemorate the birth and death of the founder of the Knights of Columbus, Venerable Michael McGivney, this program can take place anytime during the year.
