The Knights of Columbus stands as the strong right arm of the Church, and challenges members to grow in their faith through programs, fraternity and charity.
Since our council's founding in 1948 charity has been our first principle. We are Catholic men of faith and men of charitable action.
The world needs Catholic men to step up and live out their faith. The Knights of Columbus helps men to answer that call to do more, and to be more.
We serve the Holy Angels & Annunciation parishes. We are committed to continuing the Lord's work and making Him known to all. We accept the challenge to be a community dedicated to worship, education, service, caring for each other and mutual respect. We foster growth and welcome change while embracing our Catholic traditions
Our Catholic faith teaches us to “Love thy neighbor as thyself.” Members of the Knights of Columbus show love for their neighbors by conducting food drives and donating the food to local soup kitchens and food pantries, by volunteering at Special Olympics, and by supporting, both spiritually and materially, mothers who choose life for their babies. Knights recognize that our mission, and our faith in God, compels us to action. There is no better way to experience love and compassion than by helping those in need, a call we answer every day.
None of us is as good as all of us. Members of the Knights of Columbus all know that – together – we can accomplish far more than any of us could individually. As a Knight of Columbus you can count on the support and encouragement of your brother Knights as you work to make life better in your parish and community.
Venerable Michael J. McGivney founded the Knights of Columbus, in large part, to provide assistance to the widows and children left behind when the family breadwinner died – often prematurely. The Order’s top-rated insurance program continues to do this today, as do the good works of individual Knights, who gave more than 75.6 million service hours in 2017, illustrating how Catholics serve each other in fraternity and mercy.
We are proud of our devotion to God and country, and believe in standing up for both. Whether it’s in public or private, the Knights remind the world that Catholics support their nations and are among the greatest citizens.
