Family of the Month Nomination
Each month the Knights of Columbus would like to recognize a family from St. Maria Goretti parish that has modeled Catholic family values and visibly lives them every day.
Please nominate families you have seen:
- spending time in prayer
- contributing positively to the parish, school, or community
- spending quality time together
- otherwise being a good family!
Please note that although this program is sponsored by the Knights, nominations do not need to be for or from Knights of Columbus families.
