Service Programs

Service Program...A look inside the success...


A Knights of Columbus council can work wonders; in fact, with its many programs, it can help change the community, town, city or neighborhood in which you live. However, a successful Knights of Columbus program depends on people taking the initial idea, modifying it to suite specific situations and local needs, then implementing the program in the way it works.
The Knights of Columbus is a "Catholic, family, fraternal, service organization." This theme permeates the entire Service Program; all Church, community, council, family and youth activities. The Service Program is designed to establish each council as an influential and important force within the community, elevate the status of the programming personnel, and provide more meaningful and relevant programs of action, establish direct areas of responsibility, build leadership, and ensure the success of council programs.
The Service Program encompasses two major areas - programs and membership. Key personnel are appointed by the Grand Knight for their respective positions: the men selected for these various positions must command the respect of the membership in the council and have the ability to organize and supervise the work of the various directors and committeemen. They must communicate, guide, and instill in others the enthusiasm needed. Members selected for these important posts must be able to do the job required of them. These positions are demanding in terms of time, talent, dedication and enthusiasm.
