Knights of Columbus

Knights of Columbus

The Knights of Columbus are an international Catholic men’s fraternal organization.  Only practical Catholic men, in good standing with the Catholic Church, 18 years and older can join.   We are dedicated to corporal works of mercy in the service of God and our neighbor.

The Blessed Sacrament Council works to follow the example of our founder Father Michael J. McGivney who started the order to provide for the widows and orphans of it’s members.  Our primary function aside from supporting the Church and defending our faith is raising money and providing services to aid other needs in our community.  Some of those functions and needs are:

Outward Sign – financial & knight power

Lake Hill School for the Handicapped – financial & handicapped wheelchairs

Building Block Ministry – financial and bingo for the handicapped clients

Baby Bottle Boomerang – financial for the JMJ Pregnancy Support Center

Cornerstone Hospice House – financial

Greater Clermont Cancer Foundation – financial

Morning Star – financial

Special Olympics – financial

Thanksgiving Dinner for those in need cooked and served by Knights

Provided Thanksgiving meals to Santo Toribio Roma Mission and Lake Hill School

Lenten meal for parishioners

Financial and physical support for parish projects

Catholic gifts (bibles, etc.) for the children receiving sacraments

Families in need

Many Knights serve as Pastoral Lay Ministers  in support of the Church

Lead a Family Rosary service prior to our meetings each month.

 

Our principals are Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and Patriotism.  Most men who join remain members for life.  If you are interested in serving your church and community contact us:
