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


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


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


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

Knight of the Month – July 2017

Steve Castillo

Steve enjoys working “the back” at the council’s Valley Ridge youth baseball concession stand in Cedar Hill. That’s short for being the cook, responsible for preparing hot dogs, hot links, chicken sandwiches, brisket sandwiches, nachos and Frito pies.

Steve minces no words in identifying his primary reason working the middle shift each Saturday during the spring season. He loves working with Allen Reitmier, who has supervised 8157’s baseball concession operations for nine year and was honored as out Knight of the Year in 2010. “He is a very special man, and I look up him,” Steve said.

Steve grew up in Dallas, graduated from Adamson High. He’s in his 18th year at Solar Turbines in DeSoto, where he’s an overhaul applications engineer. That’s where he met Bill Chalko, our Grand Knight 1997-99, who invited him to join the council. Which Steve did in March 2002. He and wife Priscilla live in Duncanville. Steve has two grown daughters (Christina, a Texas Woman’s University grad and Ashley, Texas A&M) from his first marriage plus a stepdaughter (Alexis) and stepson (Christopher).
