The Iowa City Knights of Columbus Home Enthronement Ministry



2009: St. Wenceslaus Council 14385 of Iowa City, IA, introduced the Home Enthronement Devotion (H.E.D.), to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary to their council members and families at a special Mass and ceremony.  With the success and enthusiasm generated by this program, the council developed an Enthronement program for the entire parish.


2010: Usisng bulletin inserts and pulpit talks beginning one month prior to the Feast of Christ the King, the H.E.D program was presented to Parish families.  Following Mass on the Feast of Christ the King, the Knights, with the 4th Degree Honor Guard, lead a beautiful Eucharistic procession around the church neighborhood  to honor and celebrate the Eucharistic Heart of Jesus.


2011: The Council submitted the H.E.D as a ‘Family Service Project’ to be judged at the State Convention and happily received the 1st place award.  The State then entered the Project for consideration at the Supreme International Convention and received the 3rd place award.


At the 2012 State Convention, our Council was invited to have a display / exhibit about the Enthronement Devotion and to give two presentations on this to the Convention Attendees.  All was received with considerable attention and positive comments plus an award for the exhibit. Most importantly, we received invitations from approximately 12 other Councils to assist them in starting an H.E.D program.


Later in 2012, we will be preparing H.E.D presentations for the other Councils to assist them in their program efforts. Please keep us in prayers for this very special intention and work for the Knight communities.
