As a fraternal organization of Catholic men, the Knights of Columbus has strong ties to the Church. At all levels, from the local councils to the Supreme Council, the organization has the volunteer power, communications abilities and organization to help strengthen the Church while offering members and their families to grow in the faith. Through the sponsoring of Church-related activities the members of the Knights of Columbus continue to show that they are the strong right arm of the Church.
Some of the Church programs and activities are listed below.
- Christ in Christmas
- Lent Meal
- Clean-Up / Fix-Up Day
- Holyday Mass Parking
- Christmas Caroling
- Catechist for Confirmation
The Holy Rosary will be led before the 9:30 Sunday Mass by the Church Director or another designated Knight on the 5th Sunday of each month. In this Fraternal Year a 5th Sunday occurs on 7/31, 10/30, 1/29 and 4/30. For the remainder of 2017 the 5th Sundays are 7/30, 10/29 and 12/31. The recitation will begin at 8:55. Bring your rosary and family.
The Knights Before Christmas Mass is the 9:30 Mass on December 4. We come together as Knights families to worship together and to show the Knights presence in the parish. As with the Memorial Mass, Knights, Columbiettes and family members are asked to take on as many of the duties at Mass as possible such as sacristan, altar servers, EMHCs, readers, and ushers.
Once the tree lot sales are over in early December, up goes the Keep Christ in Christmas banner along Eastwood Road.
