Demonstrate your faith to me without works, and I will demonstrate my faith to you from my works. James 2:18

 

St. Paul says in Hebrews “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see” As Catholic men and especially as Brother knights, we confidently
hope for and truly believe that Our Lord Jesus has left for us a safe pathway to heaven. 

Pope Francis encouraged us to reach out from the Church to our family, and community and be the “evangelizers”. Our priests and religious cannot do it on their own. Helping Father!
That is what we as Knights do best. It had been said that “Knights are the strong right arm of the Church.”

All of the traditional and unique programs listed in the Faith Programs section of this handbook are designed to assist your Council in helping Father to lead souls to heaven.
They were prepared by Brother Knights who are committed to enhancing and deepening the existing faith of your council brothers, families and parishioners.

This year we have added 3 new Faith Programs. The Father McGivney Holy Hour. It consists of a Rosary and a Litany to Blessed Father McGivney. It is a wonderful way to pray for and
promote his Canonization to Sainthood. Secondly is Eucharistic Perpetual Adoration. Past Supreme Knight Carl Anderson said, “When we Knights become champions of Eucharistic
Adoration all heaven will rejoice”. Finally. Simple supper/ Stations of the Cross. This a Lenten meal followed the Stations.

Council leaders, go and visit the Pastor(s) in your area and ask him, “What can we do to help you with faith activities?” Most likely there is a program listed here that will help Father and
the many ministries broaden their outreach in the Parish and even the Community. 

Finally, you should be encouraged to submit these programs. The dedicated Brothers Knights that chair these programs are there for you. Contact them for needed and sound
advice. They will guide you in achieving a successful outcome. 

So please, have faith in what you can achieve and as St. Padre Pio said “Pray, Hope and don’t worry “.

Sincerely,

Brother George Bagley, Director
