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.

 

INSPIRATIONAL MUSIC

IMG_4625

T he heart and soul of the Knights of Columbus is in the service activities. Here is where the work of the order actually happens. Often we talk about how much good work that Knights do for the needy and it is here in the service activities that it actually happens. These Directors give of themselves unselfishly their time and energy to assure their assigned area is successful. How many behind the scenes hours spent we will never know.

The next time you go to a regular business meeting, listen between the lines and know and appreciate how much effort these Directors put forth to make the council successful.
