The Foundation for Life  

Family is “the Foundation for Life”. It molds each and every one of us. Almighty God established the family through the act of marriage of a man and a woman. It is in family that moral values are taught and placed into the hearts of the children.


As Knights of Columbus we must develop family programs within our councils that strengthen the family and mold that foundation. Some of the state programs are as follows:


State Family of the Month - The purpose of the Family of the Month program is to recognize outstanding families of your council who are active in the Church, Community and Council. The family (Knight, wife and children; however, if there are no children, Knight and wife are still eligible) should exemplify an involved,
active and faith based Catholic family.


Family Baseball Outing - Family Day at the ballpark will be held at Busch Stadium on Saturday night September 20, 2014 (6:15pm first pitch) when the Cardinals will take on the Cincinnati Reds.  Tickets are $23.00. Remember that $5.00 of each ticket purchased will be donated to the Knights of Columbus wing at Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital.  Contact Chairman Bill Schulte for more information and tickets. 

A flyer and order form are available at the bottom of this page. Go to the heading Family Day at the Ballpark, and click on the picture to open the form.

STATE FAMILY OF THE MONTH PROGRAM -

The purpose ofthe Family of the Month program is to recognize the outstanding families of your Council who are active in the Church, Community and Council. The family (Knight, wife and children; however if there are no children, Knight and wife are still eligible) should exemplify an involved, active and faith based Catholic family.

Councils have expressed concern about singling out a specific family for the award. While each council may have numerous outstanding families, there is plenty of opportunities to recognize each ofthem. More than one application can be submitted each time and there are six opportunities for submission per year.

Each Council should honor the selected Families of the Month at a Council event. Present the Family with a Family ofthe Month certificate (Form #1843) or some other form of recognition. At the end of the year each Council should select a Family of the Year from the monthly Families of the Month.

SUPREME FAMILY OF THE MONTH PROGRAM -

Each month during the Fraternal Year a family's name may be submitted to the Supreme Council on the  form provided in the Supreme "Family of the Month" program booklet provided to each Grand Knight and Family Director. At the Supreme office each month they will draw 100 names from those submitted by the Councils. Those families drawn will receive a beautiful Holy Family statue along with a letter of congratulations from Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson.

FAMILIES AND BASEBALL - AN AMERICAN TRADITION!!

2014BaseballFlyerThat old advertising campaign spoke of “Baseball, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie, and Chevrolet”. We can’t help much with the apple pie and Chevrolet, but the Baseball is well covered! (And I’m sure a Hot Dog can be found somewhere that day.)

September 20, 2014 will be the Family Day at the Ball Park at Busch Stadium with the St. Louis Cardinals taking on the Cincinnati Reds. Tickets are available now from Chairman Bill Schulte ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) for a cost of $23.00 each, and remember that $5 of each ticket will be returned to our wing at Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital! It’s always a great day, and tickets are limited, so order yours soon!
