Several months ago, the Supreme Council announced that our service program which has been driven by the “SURGE WITH SERVICE” model, will be replaced by the model “FAITH IN ACTION” starting on July 1, 2018.
Those who are Financial Secretaries have probably found that the Officers Online Form 365 submitted through Member Management, will not be available until after July 1, 2018.
I am including the link to the NEW SERVICE MODEL – FAITH IN ACTION, which lists and describes the principal programs: FAITH, FAMILY, COMMUNITY AND LIFE. This represents a reduction of two of the previous programs (COUNCIL and YOUTH), which have been integrated into the remaining programs. At the same time this model increases the number of new activities that you can perform. In addition, each Program will have a REQUIRED program for a Council to win the Columbian Award.
These changes are designed to facilitate the integration of our service program with the initiative of building the domestic Church in our parishes.
I invite you to read the new program and to share it with all the members of your Council.
To the current Grand Knights and Grand Knights Elect, I ask that you to print and share the Faith in Action Guidebook with your pastors. It is most important that they see this new service model which is aimed at helping them with the spiritual growth of their parishes.
If after reading and sharing this information with your council, you have any questions or need clarifications, please send them to me and I will try to obtain the answers in order for all of us to be successful in implementing this new service model.
