"The need could not be greater. Fathers and families face serious spiritual challenges. Knights of Columbus plays an important role in helping men become better fathers, husbands, and leaders. Together we help each other find our mission and conform our lives to Christ and our Order’s principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism. When we lead in this way we experience fulfilment, relationships improve, and others follow. Know men who are searching for faith and eager to do more? Send them to kofc.org for info. Lead, they’ll follow." --Prepared by Knights of Columbus April 2022
