|Dear Brothers and Inquiring Catholic
Since 1882, membership in the Knights of
Columbus has been open to men 18 years of age or older who are "practical"
(that is, practicing) Catholics in union with the Holy See. Since that
time, the Knights of Columbus has understood "practical catholic" to mean
a Catholic who accepts the teaching authority of the Catholic Church on
matters of faith and morals, aspires to live in accord with the precepts
of the Catholic Church, i and is in good standing in the Catholic Church.
The Knights are men building a bridge back to faith. There is much good
and necessary work to be done our community, and that’s what Knights try
to do every day.
Our goal is to help men, women, and families
in our parish grow closer to Christ through our many programs, resources,
and opportunities. Not only our goal but the goal of the national Knights
of Columbus Organization is, “Leave No Neighbor Behind”
A major program the Knights participate
in annually is the Tootsie Roll Drive which raises money for the local
ARC organization. Several other programs are funded by the Knights including
a yearly scholarship to a student at Sacred Heart School. Please investigate
and ask a current Knight about the organization and your participation
is needed and appreciated.
Look forward to meeting you at one of
our programs or meetings.
