- Conduct activities promoting the true spirit of Christmas and the importance of Christ’s birth and message.
- If needed, order the Keep Christ in Christmas (KCIC) program resources through Supplies Online, the supply ordering portal available on Officers Online.
- Prior to each event you conduct, consider crafting and distributing a tailored release to local media.
- Build public interest for your KCIC program! Promote all activities in your parish and larger community through a variety of efforts:
- Prominently display promotional posters (which can be made specifically by your council or ordered through Supplies Online)
- Bulletin announcements
- Pulpit announcements
- Posting on your council and parish website / social media pages
- Wear Knights of Columbus-branded apparel to all your KCIC activities and have the council membership director bring brochures and membership documents (including Prospect Cards #921A). Do not forget that this event is a recruiting opportunity!
- Enlist a fellow Knight or community member to photograph the event.
- To gain credit for your program, complete the associated reporting forms at the end of the Christmas season and submit them to the Supreme Council Department of Fraternal Mission. Remember to retain copies for your council records.
- Immediately after your event is finished, complete the Family Report Form (forthcoming)
- At the end of the fraternal year, complete your Columbian Award Application (#SP-7)
