Our Work

The Knights have four core areas of focus: Faith, Community, Family & Life. Our Faith in Action program empowers Knights to come together to share faith, celebrate fraternity with loved ones, and do what they do best — stand shoulder to shoulder in service to the community and to defend life at all stages and in every condition.

 

In 2017, our local council members donated 26,000 hours of their time and collected over $50,000 for our community charities and church activities.

 

None of this would have been possible without the selfless effort of its members and none of this would have been possible without the continued support of our wives and families who also donate many hours of their own time working with us. It’s personally and spiritually rewarding to be a Knight in addition to the great camaraderie you share with your brother knights and parishioners.
