Family of the Month

Written by Kevin Hudnut. Posted in Family of the Month

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 of the 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 Family of the Month winners.

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.
