Goals for this fraternal year
Families are the foundation of our society and are at the core of the Knights of Columbus. With this in mind, our council regularly sponsors activities that allow families to spend time together in activities, faith initiatives and social events. We regularly recognize the importance of the family by offering family oriented activities. Since its beginnings, the Order has always stood ready to help protect the widows and orphans of its members. This support includes remembering the widows and families of the deceased Brothers by including them in various council and parish functions.
Program directors do a terrific job in developing and bringing quality programs to our members and parishioners. But they can't do it alone. If you have any ideas for future programs/events or would like to help in some capacity, please contact the Family Program Director .
