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.

Saint James says…..

In the readings this past Sunday, St. James says it is not enough to hope those who are in need will find help. It is not ecough even to pray they find help. What we must do is step up and help those in need. That spirit was exemplified this past Wednesday September 16th when…
