The activity is part of KCFAPI’s advocacy to showcase contemporary catholic fatherhood, which aims to recognize the K of C members who exemplify the inspiring characteristics, virtues and role model qualities of a good Catholic father through responsible parenting. This also projects a strong knowledge of the mission of the Order of K of C as a means to attract new members.
The activity is a joint project of the KCFAPI and Father George J. Willmann Charities to recognize fathers who have shown by their life and examples the exemplary values of a model Catholic father. Yen Ocampo
