Could You Give 0.2% More Time to Your Faith?

“I don’t have the time.” That’s what men usually say when I ask them if they’ve considered joining the Knights of Columbus.

There are a lot of demands on your time, especially if you are a working man with a family. I should know, because I am and I do.

I said the same thing when I first thought about joining the Knights. But I realized that I had more time than I thought I did, and the Knights don’t ask for a whole lot.

How you can make a difference in only 24 hours per year

  • ​12 hours per year reading the parish bulletin, newsletters, Columbia magazine, and the council website
  • 2 hours per year volunteering at the council’s annual drive for people with intellectual disabilities
  • 2 hours per year attending, along with your family, two group masses, rosaries, or prayer groups
  • 2 hours per year on a council-sponsored Church, community, council family or youth project of your choosing.
  • 2 hours per year attending one council meeting.
  • 4 hours per year enjoying a council social function such as a dinner, picnic or Euchre night. (Your family is invited as well).

24 hours per year is only 0.2% of your time. For perspective, the average American spends 21% of their year watching TV.

Giving a fraction of your time to the Knights will help you become a better Catholic, better husband and better father.
