The Knights of Columbus is the world’s largest Catholic Family Fraternal Service Organization and has been called “the strong right arm of the Church.” Popes, Presidents and many world leaders have cited it for its support of the Church, its civic involvement, and its aid to those in need. Membership in the Knights is over 1.6 million brothers plus their families, each of them contributing annual dues to the organization. Annually the Knights provide over 50 million hours of volunteer service and over $105 million dollars donated to charitable and fraternal projects.
Locally we financially support two young men who are Seminarians to help them continue their education and to purchase any essentials they might require. We support local Church charitable activities and campaigns such as antiabortion projects as well as our Supreme Council activities. Our local fund raising activities include breakfasts after Masses, Christmas tree sales, Tootsie Roll drives, etc.
The next time you say The Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag think of the Knights. It was the Kinghts of Columbus who were responsible for adding the words “under God” to the pledge. For more information about the Knights visit the web site at:
