The purpose of this Family Prayer Page is twofold: 1) to provide one more tool to members of the Knights of Columbus and their families in becoming more engaged as they pray together as family; and 2) to show our Council’s support of the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council’s initiative as spelled out in their Building the Domestic Church: The Family Fully Alive manual. The Supreme Council’s initiative is intended to help us prepare for the Eighth World Meeting of Families to be held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on September 22 through 27, 2015. Pope Francis has confirmed his attendance at this meeting.
It is through living our lives as Catholic families, devoted to our faith, to each other and to helping those in need, that we best evangelize in a world that often seems reluctant to hear this good news.
We have provided a picture of the Holy Family and a Prayer to the Holy Family. Members who desire additional paper prints may order them from the Supreme Council’s Supply Department.
Vocations Committee--Supreme Council, Knights of Columbus
