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.

Family of the Month – December 2018

David and Veronica Ybarra

David & Veronica Ybarra

The Knights of Columbus tenet of devotion to family is rarely more evident than in the Ybarra home in Waxahachie. For the past seven years, David and Veronica have been tending to her elderly parents, who previously were living in El Paso. Veronica’s father is now 107, her mother 109. It’s a labor of love that requires a huge time commitment from David and Veronica. “It feels really good,” David said. He and Veronica have been married 40 years. They met in El Paso, where she grew up and where he moved to from Chicago when he was a youngster. David retired three years ago from a career that finished with time as a warehouse manager. Veronica is also retired; she worked at the V.A. hospital in Dallas in the dental department. They became Holy Spirit parishioners in 2003. David joined the council in 2008, soon after added his major degrees and Fourth Degree and was serving as our chancellor when he stepped away to help care for his in-laws.
