The annual Knights of Columbus Charity Brunch was held on April 23rd at the Reynolds Lake Club. The Charity Brunch is an event which recognizes the charitable works of a variety of selfless organizations in Greene, Putnam, and Hancock Counties. The Knights of Columbus donates financial assistance annually to the organizations in support of their charitable works. Each organization gave a brief update of their mission and how the donation will help their service efforts. The organizations who were recognized are:
Grand Knight Ken Weber served as Master of Ceremonies. Weber said 'inspiring stories of service from these great organizations renew our dedication to care of our brothers and sisters in need'. visiting Knights of Columbus dignitaries included Mark McMullen, Georgia State Deputy and Districk Deputy Wally Marcis.

Please join us in welcoming our new Brother Knights. Six Catholic gentlemen became Knights of Columbus at a ceremony yesterday, March 11, 2017. Many thanks to our 1st degree team and to the Knights who attended to observe.
We started the weekend with 163 members of our Council. Saturday morning we held an Admission Degree and welcomed ten new Knights so we are now at 173. Our degree team did its normal outstanding job. Thanks to Mark Holihan for organizing the event, thanks to the members of our degree team, and thanks to all our brothers who attended as observers. Our new Knights noticed and appreciated your support.
And then on Sunday we had our annual pancake breakfast with Santa. We served about 275 hungry parishioners. Too many people helped to recognize all of you but Chris and Pat Wolf, Al Popp, Joe de Junco, Ernie Ceccato, and Bill and Mary Lou Necel were working hard throughout. Bob Coletta took photos with Santa for more than 100 youngsters. And a special thanks to Bill Carman for arranging for a very special visit by Santa Claus direct from the North Pole.
2016 is winding down with only a few more events for the Knights.
Thanks for all you do for our parish and our community.
In the words of Pope Francis,
“The Lord bless you and keep you…. The Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.”
We are men of faith, comprising over 1.7 million Knights and 13,000 councils at home and overseas. Guided not only by our belief in God and the Catholic Church, but by our belief in each other, and in ourselves.
We are the Knights of Columbus. Believing that a man is defined by his actions as a follower of God, and as a leader in his community. Believing that a man is more than simply a man, when he bears the title of “Knight.”

Our Council works vigorously to support Pro Life. We conduct silent marches on January 22, to oppose the Roe vs. Wade decision. We support the First Call Pregnancy Center and other pro-life organizations. We join with our parish's Women’s Guild to support Pro Life literature. We support the Family by including our families in many of the works we do. As a group, we celebrate the Mass and Holy Eucharist together with our wives (Lady Knights) and share in breakfasts afterwards where we enjoy the fun from companionship, community and Catholics sharing a common purpose.
The Most Reverend Wilton D. Gregory, Archbishop of Atlanta, presided at the Celebration of the Sacrament of Confirmation on Saturday, March 13, 2010, at Christ Our King and Saviour Catholic Church in Greensboro, GA. The Honor Guard, provided by Pope John Paul II Council 13808, included Sir Knights: Bill Frain, Bert Bisson, Lee Langevin, Jim Nelson, and Wally Marcis.

Our Knights are dedicated to “Volunteerism.” We volunteer and work to support a wide variety of worthy church and charity activities in our community.
In the church, we serve as lecturers, ushers, choir members and leaders in many of our other ministries. Here, we show two of our knights working during our Tootsie Roll Drive for the mentally/physically disadvantaged. During our 2009 Tootsie Roll Drive, knights filled a total of 56 positions at street intersections from downtown Greensboro to downtown Eatonton on two different weekends.
The same volunteerism is pervasive in all the work the knights do in our Council. We volunteer to provide fish fries, pancake breakfasts, Trivia, visits to veterans at the VA Hospital in Augusta, visits to Nursing Homes at Christmas to sing Christmas Carols and to provide many other services in our Church and our community.
Join the Knights, become involved; feel the deep satisfaction of giving. Ask a knight.
