Our Commitment: The Knights of Columbus is built around 4 basic principles: charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism. The Knights provide financial and physical support to numerous organizations, help those in need, provide an insurance program to members, and display a profound love of country. In addition, the Knights fully support the mission of our parish, clergy, ministries, and the needs of our surrounding community.
What We Do: Provide assistance with home programs, donate to the Samaritan House, Project Gabriel, Center of Family Love, Peru Mission, and the Prison Ministry. The Knights provide a monthly pancake breakfast, serve at the Lenten Fish Fry, support the youth group, and display our "colors" at the town Fourth of July parade. In addition, the Knights serve the parish in whatever capacity they deem appropriate by providing funding and manpower as needed. This is truly a faith-based organization.
Time & Training Required: Time dedicated to this ministry is based on the amount of effort desired. Normally a fellow Knight can pick 1 program he wishes to join and expand if desired. A fully active Knight may spend 5 - 10 hours a month at most.
Helpful Attributes: Men of all talents are welcome to join the Knights of Columbus.
