Pope John Paul II believes in the Knights of Columbus, an organization started 6 years ago, whose motto is “First and Always Catholic” and whose aim is “a council in every parish to support our priests.” The Knights urge interested and qualified men of this parish, 18 years of age and older, to consider membership in this-the largest organization of Catholic laymen in the world. Part of a Catholic service organization, there are many programs such as church, community, council, family, or youth activities. The Knights promote fund raising events and use the proceeds for charitable works such as support for seminarians, church debt reduction, Right to Life organizations, several Christian organizations, sponsor a Christmas party for the local girls’ and boys’ homes, and donations to needy families at Christmas.

Council 3832 meets on the first Tuesday of each month in Columbus Hall at 7pm for the Rosary, business meeting at 7:30pm. A family social meeting is held on the third Tuesday of the month in the Fatima Center at 6:30pm with Brother Knights and family preparing the meal.
