Since its inception in 1979, the Knights of Columbus Prayer Program, featuring numerous sacred images as its centerpiece, has included more than 174,000 local council and parish prayer services, drawing some 22 million participants. The image of St. Joseph that was chosen for the current prayer program was created by iconographer Élizabeth Bergeron, based on a drawing by Alexandre Sobolev, and resides at St. Joseph’s Oratory in Montréal.
Notre Dame Council 5163 had the privilege to present this icon on the vigil of the feast of St. Joseph, March 18th, 2022; at our home, Ste. Marie Parish.
