Assisting the Priest with the offering of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is profound way for children who are 4th Grade or older to serve God and grow in reverence and respect for the Blessed Sacrament and the Sacred Liturgy.

SERVICE COUNCILS

Knights of Columbus

 

In 1882, a parish priest, Father Micheal J. McGivney founded the organization in New Haven Connecticut to provide for widows and orphans of impoverished immigrants. Since that time the Knights have grown to an organization with almost 2 million members and families worldwide.

Our founding vision continues to this day in many ways. We provide life insurance and other financial products aimed at securing the financial stability of our members and their families.

Ladies Auxiliary

The Ladies Auxiliary also has a very active membership as they sponsor various fundraisers and functions throughout the year for their special charities. The Ladies Auxiliary often contribute time and effort by providing support and assistance to the Knights of Columbus in preparing meals, refreshments, coordinating activities and other necessary components for successful events.

Catholic ladies age 18 and older are encouraged to join the Ladies Auxiliary and support the efforts of the Knights of Columbus.
