Church Activities Director

The Church Activities Director coordinates with the Community Life Director of the parish to obtain access to and use of facilities as needed by the Council. This is usually done a year in advance. The Church Activities Director also schedules Corporate Communion - a quarterly celebration of the Eucharist by Knights as a group and makes sure the Council is involved in the RSVP Program that supports seminarians. James joined the Knights of Columbus in February 2013. James is a retired phlebotomist. He and wife Judy have been members of Holy Spirit for 31 years and enjoy their 5 children and 13 grandkids. The Smiths live in Duncanville.
