Holy Family Prayer Program
The Holy Family Prayer Program was launched by the Knights of Columbus in 2015 at the 132nd Supreme Convention in Philadelphia. Each state jurisdiction received several large framed images of the Holy Family, which become the centerpiece of of prayer services held in churches and council meeting places throughout the Order. The program has been continued in the 2016-2017 Fraternal Year.
In Virginia, councils have an opportunity to host an event during the current Fraternal Year. Program materials consist of a framed picture of the holy family, prayer booklets and prayer cards. We have two sets of materials, so there will be two programs simultaneously routing around the state.
Additional information can be found in the table below.
Holy Family Prayer Program Overview
The Holy Family Prayer Program was kicked off at the Supreme Convention in August. Each council will have an opportunity to host an event between now and June 30. Program materials consist of a framed picture of the holy family, prayer booklets, and pray cards. We have two sets of materials, so there will be two programs simultaneously routing around the state. Dates and districts for each program are as follows:
Review the Pray Booklet and coordinate with your Pastor and/or Chaplain. Check the Holy Family Prayer Program Schedule for available dates. Requests should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and should include:
• Three date choices in order of preference
• Council number
• Time and location of event
• POC for movement of program materials to and from your council
The traveling briefcase contains the prayer booklets, prayer cards, instruction sheet, and program log. It is important to complete the log for your event and return items to the briefcase. Please read the instruction sheet when you receive the materials. Supreme has instructed that no money be collected nor any social activity be held in conjunction with the service.
