Blue Knights Catholic Club for Boys

by | Oct 16, 2009 | Blue Knights | 8 comments

When my boys were younger (ages 6 and 4 1/2) they joined a Blue Knights Club for a couple years which they LOVED and looked forward to each month. However, last year, there wasn’t anyone to organize and keep it going. I had my own hands full with my new Little Flowers group and, with Hubby’s schedule, it was too much for him to commit to as well, so the boys took a year off.

I can’t tell you how excited the boys (and I!) were when another mom in our home school group decided to start another group!

Last night was their first meeting and they had a great time. They came home with their list of assignments (at nearly 9pm last night) ready to get started right then on completing them before their next meeting, next month. I am so pleased to see their self-motivation, what a difference a couple years (and being able to read!) makes.

I stayed home with our younger children so that Hubby could attend with the boys.

It looks like the boys are going to have a WONDERFUL year!

    I've often wondered about the Bue Knights and if it will be an option for my son in a year or so. I'm gonna have to jump over to Marci's and check it out. Thanks for sharing this!
    I cannot tell you how heartbroken my 4 1/2 yr. old boy is that he can't be with his sister and part of the Little Flowers club!
    I've always dismissed the boys club thinking that as a female it wasn't something that I should delve into and thought perhaps with bit of nudging I could get hubby or another dad from our homeschool group to do it….now I may have to reconsider! We'll see and I'll have to pray on that one…

    My grandmother used to have a Blue Army Juniors club for all the younger grandchildren.

    I'm sooo glad you posted this!!! A while back, around the time your Little Flowers meetings started, you mentioned to me about Blue Knights. I wasn't sure about it, it looked like something the dads did with the sons, so I wasn't sure about starting one. But I've been praying about it, and now you post this (I LOVE how the Holy Spirit works!). So, maybe I CAN start our own group. Thanks so much for your inspiration and all your ideas that you share with us all.

    Dear Jessica,
    My own boys have been asking about a Club for them since I startedd Orchard House Circle with the girls. I forgot I have had this for years in the bookcase.
    Thanks for the reminder.
    God Bless

    If you have time and the energy I have tagged you for the 8 Question meme.
    Very quick to do

    I am just learning about the Blue Knights through a friend and decided to do a little research today. I found your site and was glad to see that a woman is teaching the class. All of the research says that a man should do it and at this point I don't know if we will be able to find one. Thanks for posting this. SME

    I am finally getting around to ordering for my son…since we will most likely be doing it as a family which started pack do you suggest and what age would you say this starts at? thanks

    I'd say at age 5. My boys were 4 1/2 and 6 when they started, and that was about right.

    Thanks…my second will be 4.5 in Sept…

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
