The Knights of Columbus is an organization of Catholic men whose mission encompasses four main areas – Family, Community, Life, and Faith. Within these four areas we support and sponsor a number of activities such as Coats for Kids, Food for the Hungry, Soccer Challenge, Diapers for Babies, Alzheimers, Veteran’s Assistance and Senior Citizens, to name just a few. Our council supports Mary, Mother of the Church Parish and is 175 members strong at the present time.
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.
