This year the Iowa Knights of Columbus will be even more involved with the Christ Our Life Conference in Des Moines on September 24th and 25th. Paul Lee will be leading the Rosary Sunday morning. And when people come into the conference on Sunday, they will receive a flyer that promotes the Consecration to the Holy Family and a prayer card with that prayer. During the closing Mass Knights will lead the attendees in this prayer of consecration.
The flyer will be provided to every conference attendee and a version of this flyer will be printed in each of the diocesan newspapers. Building the Domestic Church and specifically this prayer for consecration is a Supreme priority initiative. If the prayer is received warmly at the conference or if parishioners see the newspaper ads, we hope you will be asked to promote this prayer in your parishes.
This is a simple and beautiful experience that we, as Knights, can offer to our parishes. I encourage you talk with your pastor and/or council chaplain about this prayer. Then order the prayer cards and promote a Consecration to the Holy Family during a set of weekend Masses in your parish.
The prayer cards are free (including shipping) from Supply: Consecration to the Holy Family prayer cards (#10371)
Order enough cards to share with every member of your parish and distribute them before Mass.
