1 Million Meal Journey

Pack nourishing Vitafood meal packets to feed starving children

This fraternal year, Cross Catholic Outreach is supporting the Knights of Columbus on a mission to pack 1 million meals for hungry children and families in Guatemala. We are grateful to the councils and chapters who have already committed to packing more than 335,000 meals this fall.

Knights serving alongside each other can transform lives when they put their faith into action. By collaborating on this corporal work of mercy — feeding the hungry — the Knights of Columbus can positively impact the lives of suffering children and families in Guatemala.

Contact us to learn more about how you can bring this engaging experience to your council.

Box of Joy

It’s Box of Joy time!! Join Knights from across the U.S. in blessing 25,000 children in need with Boxes of Joy this Christmas season.

Give the gift of a smile and the love of Christ to a child who might otherwise not receive any gift for Christmas. Leave no neighbor behind by organizing your council to participate.

Retreats for Knights

Our retreats (virtual or in-person) engage Knights to learn through the intercessions of St. Joseph how to become more attuned to God’s plans, serve family and community, and discern what is important in the life of faith and service to God’s people. This time of reflection will lead participants into prayer, scripture, Church teaching, input, conversation, shared insights, and a celebration of the Eucharist.

Food Packing Events

Cross Catholic Outreach ships millions of Vitafood meals to hungry children and families around the world. U.S. Catholic groups, including Knights of Columbus councils, gather in a family-friendly, engaging environment to pack these life-saving meals.

Virtual Rosary

Praying the Rosary is a beautiful means of strengthening one’s faith in Christ and relationship with our Blessed Mother. One of our Outreach Priests will lead your council in prayer. Each council can customize its Virtual Rosary by selecting a short topic for the priest to cover. The council also may choose members to lead each decade. Cross Catholic Outreach will then create slides that enable participants to follow along with the prayers of this uniquely faith-filled experience.
