Family of the Year

Each year, those councils participating in the “Family of the Month” program should also select a “Family of the Year.” When selecting your council’s “Family of the Year,” follow guidelines similar to those used by the committee in choosing each “Family of the Month.” Usually the “Family of the Year” is chosen from those families named “Family of the Month” in the preceding twelve months. Your judging committee should consider whether each family has continued to exemplify the traits of a solid Knights of Columbus family. Determine which council family stands above the rest in promotion of the principles of our Church and our Order. Which family can best be called the “model” family for all in the council to follow? In every aspect of service to the Church, community and council, as well as to each other, which family most deserves the title, “Family of the Year”? Your council’s “Family of the Year” should also receive a fitting tribute. To help you honor your “Family of the Year,” the Supreme Council office makes available a full-color “Family of the Year” certificate (Item#1843A). The certificate measures 81/2” x 11” and is signed by Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson.
