St. Joseph ICONs to be in Kenosha County

KENOSHA — Every Few Years the Knights of Columbus selects an ICON of a Saint who is particularly inspiring to the Knights, their families and the communities. Each jurisdiction receives one of them, which travels from Council to Council and serves as a centerpiece for a prayer service throughout the Order.

Flowing from the Year of St. Joseph declared by Pope Francis in his Apostolic Letter Patris Corde (With a Father’s Heart), the Knights have chosen to honor St. Joseph for 2022 Pilgrim ICON Program. There will be four St. Joseph ICONs traveling through Wisconsin making stops at various Councils throughout the year.

District 67 which consist of the Kenosha County Councils will have it for the month of July with the following schedule, subject to change:
