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.

Russell and Patricia Gully

Russell joined the Knights and our council in March 1987, a few months after the newlyweds moved to DeSoto. They met in Austin, where Russell was attending the University of Texas. Russell served as our Grand Knight 1994-96 and since then has for many years been 8157’s Advocate – and even was the State Advocate for two years. The Gullys have three grown daughters and two granddaughters. Monica and husband Paul Chartier welcomed Lily in June to join 5-year-old Rosemary to their home in Pflugerville, north of Austin. Teresa recently earned her master’s in biostatistics from Boston University and is living in Madison, Wisconsin. Rachel will be a junior at UT this fall majoring in business after spending the summer studying in Edinburgh, Scotland. Russell recently completed his 35th year with the Dallas law firm Thompson and Knight. Just can’t get away from the Knights.
