Family of the Month
Families are selected by the State Family Director to be recognized as the State Family of the Month. Each Family of the Month is awarded a St Joseph addition of the New American Bible with their family name engraved on the cover. This special award recognizes families that contribute to their parishes, councils and communities.
Family of the Month entries should be completed by using the form on the State website. Go to Forms, select Council. The Family of the Month Form will be found there. This form can be completed online. Saved to your computer and then e-mailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Forms should be returned to the State Family Director by the 15th of the following month.
Winners of the Family of the Month will be announced on the State website, and in the Knightline Newsletter. The Council Grand Knight or Family Director will receive an e-mail from the State Family Director informing them that their family has been selected. Recent Family of the Month winners are listed below:
When you submit the form for Family of the Month, the family is also entered into a national drawing by Supreme. Each month Supreme will have a drawing from all the Family of the Month Entries. They will award 100 families an Icon of the Holy Family. Families do not need to be selected as the State Family of the Month to be entered into this drawing.
