Faith Programs

St. John the Apostle Council

Chairman: Open Position



Chairman: Jim Snead


Our goal is to strengthen men and their families in the Catholic faith. Formation in our faith goes beyond mere facts or religious practice to an authentic connection with a loving God and his son Jesus Christ. Programs in this category are designed to draw us closer to God and the Church in a tangible and meaningful way.

5th Sunday Rosary Program

rosary-1 The Knights of Columbus Council 13467 invites all parishioners to join us on the 5th Sunday of the month, immediately following the 11:00am Mass to pray the Rosary.

We will gather in the church for this celebration (or at the Grotto weather permitting).

Another of Mary's promises is "I have obtained from my Devine Son that all the advocates of the Rosary shall have for intercessors the entire celestial court during their life and at the hour of death." Please come and spend one half hour to pray with us, asking Mother Mary to carry our prayers of thanks and gratitude to our Lord and Savior. We also give thanks and appreciation to our Lady for her unending intercession.

All are invited and encouraged to honor the Blessed Virgin Mary by participating in this great devotion. No pre-registration is required, just show up and participate.

Please Join Us!

    Sacramental Gifts


    The sacraments stand as the most significant events in the life of the church. The Knights of Columbus Council 13467 will be here to support and embrace parish families at these essential moments of encounter with Christ. As children and adult members become more integrated into the life of the church and their parish, they should know that members of the Knights of Columbus will always be present in a tangible and meaningful way, regardless of who else is there for them.

    Currently we are presenting each Baptismal family with a Guardian Angel Crib Medal. (Sample shown below). In the future we plan to provide similar or other appropriate gifts for Baptisms, First Communion, Confirmation, Weddings and Holy Orders.
