Knights of Columbus

One of the primary missions of the Knights of Columbus is to support local charities. The Knights are a familiar sight around town during the annual Tootsie Roll® drive, which raises funds for charities that support the retarded and handicapped. We also support other fund raising drives to aid local parishes and charities.

The Knights of Columbus promotes family values by providing numerous activities throughout the year that the entire family can participate in. Additionally, the organization provides an opportunity to ensure that a knight’s family is provided for in the event of his death.

Here is short list of reasons you may want to join the Knights of Columbus:

  • An opportunity to become part of the world’s largest Catholic fraternal organization.
  • A great way to make a personal contribution to the Church and community through charity and fraternity.
  • Active participation in Council activities serves as a “school of leadership” which will enable you to develop qualities that enhance your strengths and abilities.
  • A sense of “belonging” in an organization that shares your religious beliefs and brings to together like-minded

  • Concerns for your family and your retirement years can be addressed by the Orders optional, low-cost life insurance.
  • A sense of pride, knowing that the Knights of Columbus is second to none in support of our Holy Father, our
