​​Our Lady, Queen of the Knights, bless all the activities of our Order. Keep us true to our pledge, to extend the kingship of thy divine son on earth. 

Through Thine intercession, win for us the grace, ever to exemplify in our public and private lives, the virtues that should characterize those especially dedicated to the service of the heavenly court. 

​Make us always aware that as your Knights, we are constantly observed, our faith judged, and our Order appreciated. Accept, O Mary, this renewed pledge of fealty and devotion, of Thy Servants, the Knights of Columbus.

Message from our Worthy Grand Knight

If you are a Catholic man 18 years and older, consider joining our Knights of Columbus Council. Our organization helps those in need, serves our parish and community, provides fellowship with other Catholic men, and, most importantly, helps grow your Catholic faith.  Our Council offers many different opportunities for you to serve others.  As a member of the Knights of Columbus, you can pick and choose which events you would like to participate in.  Last year alone, our Council members participated in over 16 different events which helped enable our Council to make monetary donations to many worthy causes. I  invite you to join this band of brothers dedicated to doing good in the service of God and our neighbor.
God Bless!
