Brother Knights, I hope this message finds you well and you and your families are having a wonderful summer. I want to thank you for all of your hard work during the previous Fraternal Year. Let’s keep up the good work.
The required program in the Family Category to be eligible for the Columbian Award is the Consecration to the Holy Family. To help families live out the joy of Christ, Supreme Chaplain Archbishop William E. Lori has composed a prayer through which families will come together to consecrate themselves under the protection of the Holy Family. In this prayer, we ask for the aid or intercession of the perfect son Jesus Christ, Mary the perfect mother, and Joseph who is a model for every father. Councils will guide their parishes and community to understand and offer this important and impactful prayer. Preparing for the Consecration to the Holy Family is not a single event. It is choosing a way of life for your family. Through this consecration, each participant is consciously choosing to be a beacon of God’s love through his Church.
