The Blue Knights is a Catholic boys club that teaches the concept of Knighthood based on virtue. Boys have a great time participating in this program and growing in their faith. The first year program builds a suit of armor – the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, etc… The highlight of the year is the “Knights of the Round Table Celebration” for the boys, fathers, grandfathers & godfathers to participate in. Resources used for this program: Blue Knights by Dan McGuire and Father Lasance — The Young Man’s Guide.
The Little Flowers is a Catholic girls club that teaches them about the Virgin Mary (Role Model), St. Therese of Lisieux, (Patroness Saint), other saints of the church, and their own mothers. There is a flower, scripture verse and color for each month as well as a traditional craft or activity that the girls do with the help of their mothers. The goal of the club is to teach what it means to be a Catholic girl and eventually a Catholic woman. The highlight of the year is a “Tea Party” that the girls host for their mothers, grandmothers, godmothers and religious sisters.

Totus Tuus Boys Group is for Catholic boys who want to have fun fostering relationships with priests, religious, seminarians, laymen, and their own fathers. The goal of the group is to form the boys to be strong Catholic men in defending and living out their faith. The monthly meetings include fun (some type of sport), a virtue talk on how to live out their faith better, and prayer (usually benediction and exposition of the Holy Eucharist). We challenge the boys to “Be Not Afraid” in witnessing to their faith by organizing and/or participating in various service projects throughout the year that focus on the corporal works of mercy. Father/Son retreats and camps are also available throughout the year. We encourage fathers to be present and have fun with their son(s) as often as possible.
