Supreme Knight’s Award Session recognizes International Program Award winners, Family of the Year, and the first recipient of the Blessed Michael McGivney Medal

The Knights of Columbus welcomed guests to its 140th Supreme Convention with the Supreme Knight’s Award Session, held at the historic Grand Ole Opry House on Aug. 1. The awards session annually recognizes individual Knights, councils, assemblies, and jurisdictions for outstanding achievement in the areas of membership growth and retention, charitable outreach, fraternal leadership, and insurance sales and service.
International program awards were given to K of C councils that conducted an outstanding program in each area of the organization’s Faith in Action program categories over the past year: faith, family, community, and life.

The session also recognized the Knights’ International Family of the Year and featured the inaugural presentation of the Blessed McGivney Medal, which will annually honor a Knights of Columbus chaplain.

More information about the International Program Award winners, the Family of the Year and Blessed Michael McGivney Medal recipient can be found below.
