Who are the Knight of Columbus?
We are Catholic men, your neighbors, friends and fellow parishioners. We are 175 members strong supporting the parish of Mary Mother of the Church, when you are in Church, there is a Knight close by.
What do the Knights of Columbus Do?
The Knights of Columbus have four general programs – Family, Community, Life & Faith. Under these programs are numerous activities that we support and sponsor such as Coats for Kids, Food for the Hungry, Soccer Challenge, Diapers for Babies, Alzheimers, Free Throw Contest, March for Life, Keep Christ in Christmas, Veteran’s Assistance and Senior Citizens, to name just a few.
To find out about any of these activities, have an activity you think the Knights should be involved in or would like to get involved with any of these programs, please visit our website www.kofc570.org.
If you have ever considered joining us but were afraid that the commitment may be too great, let me assure you that no one will ever ask you to donate more of your time than you want. You have no idea how greatly it would be appreciated if you can just donate even two hours of your time a year to help in one of our activities.
