2019-2020 Fraternal Year
Life Programs Plan Updated 12/10/2019
In 2019 the Knights of Columbus are implementing a new structure to organize our community and spiritual contributions called Faith in Action. Faith in Action is broken down into 4 major program components which are, Faith, Family, Community and Life. The Life Program Director is responsible for putting in place a plan to organize, promote and execute programs that support the guidance and emphasis provided by Supreme Council for this program. Council 12126 had decided to focus the 2019–2020 fraternal year on the following key initiative as selected from the recommended list from Supreme with a mix of community and faith-based initiatives. After several planning meeting with Council Officers, and research and discussion with others in our parish and community, the Life Program Director, Bruce Culbert recommends the following programs, activities and actions. Also see additional spreadsheet on budget and fundraising requirements.
The Life Programs for 2019–2020 Fraternal Year is broke down by Community based initiatives and Spiritual based initiatives. These particular programs were chosen because they were programs that we were already supporting, such as March for Life and Special Olympics, and programs we felt we could do successfully with a positive impact on our church family and the community. All of the recommend programs fit into the definition of the Life Programs as defined by the Supreme Council. The program recommendations for 2018-1019 are:
