Faith in Action | Knights of Columbus

As our order begins using the #FaithinAction program model, we will use the month of July to promote some of the various ways our councils can fulfill program goals and earn the Columbian Award for outstanding programming.

One of the featured programs in the Life category is participation in a March for Life. Demonstrating public support for the right to life encourages others to choose life, and helps advance the cause in the public sphere.

Councils that coordinate at least 50 participants or who organize a local March for Life will receive credit for the program. While the National March in Washington, D.C. may be inaccessible for some, the Texas Rally for Life in Austin is held around the same time in January and can easily be accessed by charter bus or a caravan.

Councils coordinating trips should begin planning well in advance, including the cost per person for bus travel and snacks for the journey. A solid itinerary should be planned and communicated to attendees that allows for delays in transit, convenient meal breaks, and restroom stops if necessary. Public interest can eb built through both parish announcements and reaching out to local schools and other organizations which advance the cause of life.

A well-organized trip to the Texas Rally for Life is conducted annually out of several local parishes, including St. Justin Martyr, home of Chapter Chaplain Fr. Paul Chovanec and Chapter Treasurer James DeGhelder. Touch base with one of them before or after a chapter meeting to discuss how you can replicate their success in your own parish.

As our order begins using the #FaithinAction program model, we will use the month of July to promote some of the various ways our councils can fulfill program goals and earn the Columbian Award for outstanding programming.

One of the featured programs in the Community category is the American Wheelchair Mission. The humanitarian mission has delivered close to a million wheelchairs throughout the globe, helping to restore mobility and dignity to countless individuals and their families.

Organized by Chris Lewis, son of the legendary philanthropist Jerry Lewis, the American Wheelchair Mission purchases wheelchairs in bulk for a fraction of what they would cost at retail. Councils can donate as little as $150 for a single wheelchair, or can coordinate a Sunday Wheelchair Mission drive—with the permission of their pastor—to bring attention to the cause and raise funds throughout a weekend of masses.

Through sustained efforts and partnerships, councils can purchase containers of 110 or 280 wheelchairs and have them shipped to designated distribution sites. The Galveston-Houston Chapter has already placed two such containers and is working towards a third. For more information on how you can join the Chapter effort, contact diocesan wheelchair chairman Rich Butler.

Despite Hurricane Harvey, 2017-2018 was a banner year for Texas State Charities, with over $1 million raised for charitable causes, including Special Olympics, Educational Grants, Assistance for infirm priests, and local projects ccoordinated by our bishops. Cardinal DiNardo has designated his portion for Catholic Schools.

Immediate Past State Deputy Doug Oldmixon provides an update on the close of the 2017-2018 fraternal year and presents the inaugural Texas State Charities championship to our previous charities director, Ron Alonzo, for achieving $1 million raised in the previous fraternal year.

Johnny Evers (second from right) and Hank Gowdy (right), teammates on the 1914 World Series-winning "Miracle" Boston Braves, are shown with sailors outside the #KofC Paris headquarters on Place de Madeleine in the fall of 1918.

Evers – enshrined in baseball lore with his double play "Tinkers to Evers to Chance" – was “over there” with the Knights of Columbus to support the U.S. Army and Navy with social and humanitarian service under the banner Everybody Welcome, Everything Free.

Hank Gowdy – a sergeant with the Rainbow Division, 42nd Infantry – was the first major league player to enlist to serve in #WWI.

As our order begins using the #FaithinAction program model, we will use the month of July to promote some of the various ways our councils can fulfill program goals and earn the Columbian Award for outstanding programming.

One of the recommended programs in the Faith category is hosting a Holy Hour. Hosting an hour of eucharistic adoration encourages a deep personal encounter with God. A council-sponsored Holy Hour can be prepared for the council, the men of the parish, or the community at large, and can include a reflection, communal rosary, and/or prayers for intercession by Fr. Michael McGivney.

Councils need not establish a new hour of adoration if their parish already sponsors perpetual adoration or an existing schedule of adoration. Coordinating with your pastor can help to incorporate the council-sponsored effort with existing eucharistic adoration, and perhaps provide periodic relief to other individuals who might otherwise be wary of taking vacation due to their commitment to the sacrament.

To satisfy the program requirement, Holy Hours should be organized at least four times per fraternal year (quarterly), though many councils may opt to host a monthly Holy Hour or participate in their parish’s weekly Holy Hours.

The Galveston-Houston Chapter has already begun hosting hours of Eucharistic Adoration prior to our regular meetings, and will continue to do so in the months to come. While this is not intended to replace a parish Holy Hour, it will help councils—particularly those community councils without parish affiliation—to fulfill the minimum requirements of the program in the event that organizing a parish-based holy hour is not possible.

As our order begins using the #FaithinAction program model, we will use the month of July to promote some of the various ways our councils can fulfill program goals and earn the Columbian Award for outstanding programming.

The required program for the Life category is the Novena for Life. To bolster this important cause, councils will promote nine days of sustained prayer to build up a culture of life in our parishes, homes, and wider communities.

The novena itself can take a variety of forms and be held on a variety of dates. It’s recommended that the council incorporate such a novena into existing participation with a 40 Days for Life campaign or schedule it so that it precedes a major feast day or pro life event. Resources for such a novena can be found on the Supreme website.

For those who are looking for a more defined model, the USCCB has compiled a Nine Days for Life “digital pilgrimage” for January 14-22, 2019. The novena consists of prayer and action focused on cherishing the gift of every person’s life. It highlights a different intention each day and provides reflections, information, and suggested action items. Participating in the USCCB Nine Day for Life allows you to both fulfill the required program and pray in solidarity with our bishops’ call to action.

In his latest prayer video, Pope Francis asked Catholics to dedicate the month of July to giving a spiritual gift to their pastors by praying for them: "That priests, who experience fatigue and loneliness in their pastoral work, may find help and comfort in their intimacy with the Lord and in their friendship with their brother priests."

A great video on the service of Fr. Vincent Capodanno. The Sea Aggies at Texas A&M University Galveston Council #16146 named their council in his honor.

Fr. Vincent Capodanno sacrificed his life during the crucible of war. His example has inspired many Brother Knights and offers a poignant reflection on the meaning of patriotism as we celebrate #IndependenceDay.

Being one of the Knights of Columbus' foundational pillars, Patriotism makes us reflect not only on our devotion to God, but also to country. U.S. Knights continue to strive to make the #USA that shining city upon the hill; to be the model of Christian Charity; to be the light of the world that we desperately need. One Nation, under God! #July4th #IndependenceDay

As our order begins using the #FaithinAction program model, we will use the month of July to promote some of the various ways our councils can fulfill program goals and earn the Columbian Award for outstanding programming.

The required program for the Community category is the new “Helping Hands” program. Just as our founder, the Venerable Fr. Michael J. McGivney, led efforts to assist those most in need, councils are encouraged to form partnerships with local aid organizations or independently plan unique activities to help those in their community.

Events held through the Helping Hands program should be suited to the activities that best fit the community needs, such as serving or running a soup kitchen, repairing the facilities of a local service organization, or the like.

The Galveston-Houston Chapter worked extensively with the Houston Food Bank in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, and encourages councils to do likewise for their local communities. If your council finds the nearest Food Bank hub too far for reasonable involvement, there are various assistance ministries located throughout the city, including West Houston Assistance Ministries and Memorial Assistance Ministries.

For those councils looking for a Catholic organization to support, Magnificat House runs the Loaves & Fishes Soup Kitchen in east downtown, and most parishes sponsor their own St. Vincent de Paul Society charter.

Find the local organization meeting the needs of your community and bolster the support that they need. For more information on how to successfully conduct this program or to see more of the Faith in Action program guide, visit https://www.kofc.org/en/programs/index.html .

There's a camaraderie that forms around labor. Men build bonds working together for a common good. Our order isn't open to all, but if you find one who is eligible to join our ranks, send them our way.

Time and again, we see instances how loneliness can be fought when we build communities around a common cause. Catholic men have Knights of Columbus and women have Daughters of Isabella and Catholic Daughters to choose from, should they seek friendship with a charitable background.

As our order begins using the #FaithinAction program model, we will use the month of July to promote some of the various ways our councils can fulfill program goals and earn the Columbian Award for outstanding programming.

The required program for the Family category is the Consecration to the Holy Family. As families come together to consecrate themselves under the protection of the Holy Family, they can better live out the joy of Christ.

Supreme Chaplain Archbishop William Lori has composed a prayer through which families will come together and consecrate themselves to the Holy Family. Councils will guide their parishes and community to understand and offer this important and impactful activity, which can also gain an indulgence for all who participate.

The recommended date to do the consecration is on the Feast of the Holy Family, which typically falls on the Sunday between Christmas and New Year’s Day. What better a time than during the holidays, with family gathered around, to re-engage one’s faith? That said, the consecration can be held at any time, such as during a family weekend at a college council that would not be in session in late December.

Regardless of when you conduct the event, consult with your pastor, obtain his permission, and get recommendation on conducting a Consecration to the Holy Family at your parish. Remember that the Consecration is not a single event, but rather the start of choosing a way of life in your family and consciously choosing to be a beacon of God’s love through His Church.

As our order begins using the #FaithinAction program model, we will use the month of July to promote some of the various ways our councils can fulfill program goals and earn the Columbian Award for outstanding programming.

The required program for the Faith category is incorporating a spiritual reflection program. Annual opportunities for prayer and reflection can be rejuvenating spiritual events with a lasting impact on participants' relationship and faith.

Councils need not originate their own retreat from scratch,especially given the wealth of quality retreat programs already in existence. Promoting and attending an existing retreat also fulfills the requirement.

Many parishes currently offer an ACTS Retreat, which encourages men and women to come together for Adoration, Community, Theology, and Service.

Many college ministries host some form of Awakening Retreat. The local one for Galveston-Houston is Bayou Awakening, organized by the Office of Young Adult and Campus Ministry twice a year.

In addition, Houston is home to a number of high quality retreat centers, including Holy Name Passionist Retreat Center, Circle Lake Retreat Center, and the Cenacle Retreat House - Houston. Check their calendars for available retreats that might work with your demographic and their schedule.

Knights around the world know that the chance to roll up our sleeves and demonstrate our faith through service is as powerful as it is rewarding.

My husband Joseph is a 3rd degree knight and a teacher in a Catholic school. Our home burned this week. We are renters, so the property owner's insurance covers nothing of ours. We're going to be out of our home for 6 to 8 months during the restoration. We'll need to rent a place, furniture, and appliances. Even if you can't contribute, please share our GoFundMe page with friends.
It begins!
