programs which serve their church and their community.

Knights of Columbus International Family Program of the Year Award
St. Pius X Knights of Columbus Council received the International Family Program Award at the 141st KC Supreme Convention held in Orlando earlier in August of 2023. The program called “Adopt a Widow” currently includes 16 wives of deceased brother knights from the council who are still living. One member from the Council “adopts” a widow and offers caring contact, support (rides, etc.), and in some cases, manual labor if requested. The programs purpose is to carry out Blessed McGivney’s calling to care for the widows of the Order. After two years, this program helped blossom close relationships between the widows and the Council, and it continues to do so.
Congratulations to our KC Council and all members who participate in the program. Berny Saletel, who started the program, attended the convention at the Orlando Marriott World Center with his wife, Nina, and accepted the award on behalf of the council.
