When was the last time you sat down with your lady and said the rosary? With all the distractions in our lives, it’s difficult enough to get everyone together in our home for a meal, let alone time to pray. Supreme has two activities listed in the Faith in Action guidebook to help get everyone together and bring faith back into the Domestic Church. Family Week is a great time to bring your family and parish together for faith based activities such as a promoting family values, Christian based movie night, Rosary program, family prayer night using K of C family prayer cards, family of the month/year, Holy Hour, and Sacrament of Reconciliation. Start your week off with Sunday Mass then include the activities listed above during the week. Conclude your family week with Mass on the following Sunday. Remember when planning always include your priest/chaplain. Talk to your priest, ask him how we can conduct (required activity) a Consecration to the Holy Family. Some councils are including this worthy activity during a regularly scheduled parish Holy hour.
Congratulations to the following councils for having your family of the month recognized by Supreme.
- Council 726 Harry Stempf
