The Knights of Columbus
The Knights of Columbus has numerous volunteer service programs that will let you help us share the “Experience”:
· In Services to the Church – Knights are the “strong right arm” of their local parishes. They help with tasks and special projects that require both the financial and manpower based resources that the Knights can provide.
· They serve as lectors, Eucharistic Ministers, ushers and even choir members as a means of enhancing the liturgy.
· Serving the Community – Knights participate in food drives for the homeless, sponsor soup kitchens and staff facilities to help those who might otherwise go without food.
· Knights conduct drives to raise money for Citizens with Mental Retardation.
· Knights sponsor “Blue Masses” to pray for and show support for their local police, fire and emergency services personnel.
· For the good of the council – Councils hold activities that foster fraternal bonds between members, allow for networking opportunities and building leadership skills in members that lead to professional success.
· Council service programs are designed on a council by council basis to conduct projects that suit both the needs of the community and the interests of their membership.
· For the Family – Councils sponsor social functions that are open to members and their families. Councils conduct several events every year ranging from family outing and holiday parties to elaborate barbecues.
· Councils award Family of the Month and Family of the Year awards to recognize those families that embody all that the Knights stand for.
