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 nearly 2 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 mission Statement: The Knights of Columbus Council 13808 is a fraternal society of Catholic men growing in faith and service who contribute their time and talents for the benefit of those in need.
Knights of Columbus Council 13808 serves our church, our pastor, our families, and our community. We are defenders of the right to life.
“As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live”
Pope John Paul ll
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. Also shown is Jerry Farnell, Grand Knight of Council 13808.
Imagine being part of an organization that fills your heart and your mind with the joy of giving to others and the feeling that comes with making a difference.

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 a group of Knights working during our Tootsie Roll Drive. During our 2017 Tootsie Roll Drive, Knights filled a total of 77 positions at street intersections over three different weekends, raising over $13,000 for People With Intellectual Disabilities.
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, 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.
