Bible Placement for 2018-2019

This fraternal year we are launching a new Service Model: “FAITH IN ACTION.” This new Service Model is calling us to integrate our Councils’ programs into our Parishes’ activities while providing us a great opportunity to build the Domestic Church in our Council families as well as the families of our Parishes.

Faith in Action is composed of four categories: FAITH, FAMILY, COMMUNITY AND LIFE. In the FAITH Category, the Supreme Council has recommended new programs where the Florida State Council’s Bible Placement Program will enhance the participation of our brother Knights, their families and parish friends. These new programs are: (1) Spiritual Reflection Program, (2) Holy Hour Program, (3) Gifts for Sacrament Recipients. Purchasing Bibles for these programs enhances your Columbian Award Applications (SP-7).

Our Bible Placement Program will be enhanced with your purchase of a Bible from our large selection of Bibles for the young and the old. In addition to these new programs, our Bibles are always a very nice gift to new First Communion recipients, new Confirmands, newly married couples, to the imprisoned as well as the sick and disabled.

When you place an order of Bibles through the Florida State Council, in addition to quality and beautiful Bibles, you receive a template for you to print labels to be placed on the Bibles with the Knights of Columbus emblem and the following wording:

“Compliments of the Knights of Columbus”

“Council Name and Number”

In addition, the Council with the highest amount of Bible purchases is presented an award at the State Convention.
