The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic Men’s Fraternal Organization that supports the Church and strives to live and be strong Catholic role models in both our church and our community. We are always looking for like-minded Catholic men to join our organization. Knights are committed to making their community a better place while supporting the Church.

Our Council has won seven “Star Council” awards in the last nine years and very active in supporting the principles of Charity, Fraternity, Unity, and Patriotism, our four pillars. The contributions go far beyond the Famous Lenten Fish Fry’s and you don’t have to look far to find evidence of our involvement and support of the parish.

If you are searching for an opportunity to build more friendships, give back to the church and community, please contact our Grand Knight, or attend one of our social meeting held on the 4th Wednesday of each month at the PAC. Our Knight’s Council newsletter, The Carpenter, is available on our website detailing the most recent activities.

If you are interested in more information, or if you are a man interested in joining, please visit the Knights of Columbus Council 12772 website.
