Serve with men of faith and men of action.

The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic, family, fraternal benefit society of Catholic men dedicated to three founding principles of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism.

Chartered in 1882, the Order has become world renowned for bringing economic stability to families in need. With national members numbering over 1.8 million, St. Patrick Parish is proud of its Knights, who faithfully serve church, country and fellowman. The Order today is true to its founding principles of charity, unity and fraternity and Patriotism. The Knights of Columbus remains a Catholic, family, fraternal, service organization. These themes permeate all that we do locally at St. Patrick Parish and beyond.

Knights of ColumbusThe Knights of Columbus expects each local Council to be an influential and important force within its Parish community. We are expected to positively impact our community, by responding to its’ varied needs. As an organization, we build leadership skills within our ranks.

What we do locally

St. Patrick Council, through its fundraising efforts, raises needed money which, as determined locally, serves to augment the varied needs of our Parish, as well as community needs. As a brotherhood, we are proud to have been able to respond to requests to fulfill many parish needs, through our people, their skills and with both financial and non-financial resources. We help our vibrant parish thrive and grow and while serving those worthy causes, which are in keeping with our faith, beyond St. Patrick Parish’s spiritual community.

Fitting into a global picture

Every day, Knights all over the world are given opportunities to make a difference—whether through community service, raising money or prayer. Knights everywhere are called to respond with charity to the physical and spiritual needs of the world; willing to go “on mission in the footsteps of Mary”—seeing with the eyes of faith and manifesting God’s saving work.
