FAMILY LIFE ACTIVITIES
The Foundation for Life
Family is “the Foundation for Life”. It molds each and every one of us. Almighty God established the family through the act of marriage of a man and a woman. It is in family that moral values are taught and placed into the hearts of the children. As Knights of Columbus we must develop family programs within our councils that strengthen the family and mold that foundation.
Some of the state programs are as follows:
State Family Recognition
The Knight of the Month, Family of the Month, and Youth of the Month have all been consolidated under Family Recognition. The purpose of the Knight of the Month, Family of the Month, and Youth of the Month programs are to recognize outstanding Knights, Families, and Youth of your council who are active in the Church, Community and Council. There's no better way to recognize someone who demonstrates outstanding charitable leadership.
Family Baseball Outing
Family Day at the ballpark will be held at Busch Stadium on Saturday September 5th, 2015 (3:05 pm first pitch) when the Cardinals will take on the Pittsburgh Pirates. Tickets are $23.00. Remember that $5.00 of each ticket purchased will be donated to the Knights of Columbus wing at Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital. The last day to purchase tickets is August 15th. The flyer with all the information can be found @ mokofc.org/programs/family day at the ball park. Please contact Chairman Bill Schulte for more information and tickets.
Night At the Missouri Mavericks
State Chairman Dave Dillon has been busy with coordinating activities. Once again this year you can spend a "Night Out with the Mavericks". The date for this is tentatively set for January, 2016. Watch the Mariner, newsletter, or the website for more information. Last year there was little attendance at this event so if you are in the west side of the state plan to attend. Dave also needs ideas for new activities. If
there is something that may draw interest please contact Dave and let him know.
