Charity

There is no better way to experience love and
compassion than by helping those in need,
a call Knights answer every day.

Unity

Knights banded together can accomplish more
than any of us could accomplish individually
in support of our Church and priests.

Fraternity

Knights socialize together and take care of each other –
we have each others’ back.

Patriotism

Members of the Knights of Columbus are proud
of our devotion to God and country,
and believe in standing up for both.

However, they somehow reminded me of an upcoming birthday with this picture and the information offered about: Food Safety Tips for the Holidays…

The Church Will Prevail!

The Church Will Prevail! In every historical period the Church has demonstrated her power to preach divine truths to the world. But the consequences of mistakes and the reality of sin gives testimony to man’s weakness. The Church therefore, could have collapsed at least four different times in her long history if not for divine…
