    FAITH FORMATION

    SUPREME CHAPLAIN'S MONTHLY CHALLENGE

    Each month, Archbishop William Lori – Supreme Chaplain of the Knights of Columbus – selects a brief passage from the Gospel reading of one of the Sunday Masses of the month.

    Archbishop Lori shares a brief reflection on the passage and issues a challenge for men to live for the month.

    The next month, men undertaking the challenge as a group gather and share their experiences living the challenge.

    The Supreme Chaplain’s Monthly Challenge is ideally done during monthly Knights of Columbus meetings, but can be done in a separate group or individually.

    By taking up the Supreme Chaplain’s Monthly Challenge, men take direct, concrete action to grow in their faith and help their brothers do so as well.
