Every few years, the Knights of Columbus select an icon of a saint whose patronage is particularly inspiring to Knights and their communities. The State of Florida received one of these icons, which has traveled from council to council and serves as the centerpiece for prayer services in parishes throughout the Order.
Our KoC Coral Gables Council #3274 will be the custodian of the 2021-22 St. Joseph icon, which has been blessed by Pope Francis. The icon will be displayed at this weekend’s 10:30 am Mass here at the Church of the Little Flower. We join Supreme Knights Patrick Kelly, and all our local Knights of Columbus, in “turning in prayer to St. Joseph, giving thanks to God for the gift of his fatherly example, and asking St. Joseph to be a father to us as we seek to grow in our own imitation of St. Joseph’s quiet strength, integrity and fidelity.”
