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.

Remembering Bennie Sikorski, 1931-2015

bennie-sikorski-2015It is with our deepest regret that we must share the news of the loss of our Brother Knight Bennie Sikorski. We extend our condolences to his family and we ask that you keep them in your prayers. A beloved husband, loving father and grandfather, Bennie passed away peacefully on November 14, 2015.

Bennie was from Houston, graduating from St. Thomas High School. He earned an economics degree from St. Mary’s University in San Antonio, an MBA in management and data systems from the University of Dallas and also attended the military Command and General Staff College in Kansas. During Bennie’s Army career, he spent three years in France, one in Korea and two in Vietnam. In France, he was part of the unit that delivered the first T2 tanker to provide petroleum in Germany.

Bennie joined the Knights about 28 years ago, when stationed in Hampton, Va. He settled here when his last Army assignment was in the area and retired as a Lieutenant Colonel. He became a parishioner of Holy Spirit in 1998. Bennie later worked in data systems support for General Dynamics. Bennie was predeceased by his wife of 54 years, Virginia. He is survived by his daughter, Belinda; son, Michael and wife, Mikki, and grandson, Sean; sister, Mary Grace Pavlik; brothers, Stanley Sikorski and Father Louis Sikorski; sister-in-law, Eunice L. Balke; cousins, nieces, nephews, caring friends, and extended family.
