Our Formation Programme is offered to all councils of the Jurisdiction. It is in no way imposed as “official”. Its purpose is to ensure a balance between Knights of Columbus good works and faith, since the former if not nourished by prayerful reflection, can become just another social justice program with little relation to Christ or membership of the people of God.


In the renewal of our rituals the sacraments play a great role. And since we are a sacramental Church, it would be fitting to reflect again on the sacraments and what they mean in our daily lives.

The Sacraments are our energizing agents for our activities to bring into our world and families which were expressed at the Supreme Convention in Denver as theme: “So that the world may know new hope”

(Blessed John Paul II)


First, each Council must take ownership of its own programme.

Second, a few enthusiastic leaders in each Council (not the Grand Knight or Chaplain) should familiarize themselves with the programme and the theme for the discussion the night of the meeting. They can then be responsible for distribution of sufficient copies to members, lead the readings and, when necessary lead or support the sharing and reflection. It may take a little work to get started but the effort is worth it. Many Councils in our Jurisdiction for years have enjoyed this spiritual component to their busy agenda and welcome the opportunity to learn at each meeting something new about the Catholic Faith. In these days when as Christi-fideles Laici, Knights of Columbus often have to stand up and be counted in discussions on controversial issues regarding faith, morals and common decency. The Programme, if followed faithfully, may help in doing so.

Prayer of St. Vincent Pallotti

Almighty Father, during his life on earth, Christ implored you earnestly for the unity of his followers.

We are to be one, as you, Father, are one with the Son and the Holy Spirit.

We confess that human weakness and guilt have divided the Church.

Give us, your people, the spirit of discernment. Remove misunderstanding and prejudice from among us. Open our hearts to the full truth.

Your people lack the love that would bind them together. Indifference, discord and intolerance drive them apart.

Send your Spirit of Love into the hearts of your Faithful to guide them to work actively for the unity of Christians.

Teach us to work with one mind to fulfill the command that Jesus gave us.

Remove from us all selfishness, formalism and narrow-mindedness. Open our eyes, enlighten our minds, inflame our hearts that we may see and accomplish what will be for your greater honor and glory.
