Family of the Month
The structure of the family is built on strength, faith and love. Strength comes from a bond of togetherness, experience and respect for one another. Families build a strong foundation of faith as they pray, attend Mass and spend time together.
The Supreme Council encourages every council to participate in the Order’s “Family of the Month” program. To take part a council selects a member and his family as its “Family of the Month” using the guidelines explained in the Family of the Month booklet (#1993) provided to each council in its “Surge …with Service” kit.
Items that your committee should look for (but not be restricted to) in their selections are:
• Has the family made significant contributions to the Church, community, and/or council?
• Does the family get along?
• Does the family share experiences?
• Does the family communicate openly and honestly?
• Does the family pray and attend Mass together?
After having chosen a family, complete and submit the corresponding monthly form from the Family of the Month. A copy of this form is also available online at www.kofc.org/forms. These forms are sent to the Supreme Council office. On the 15th day of each month 100 Family of the Month reporting forms are randomly selected and the families chosen receive a Holy Family plaque.
