Mission Statement: A Catholic fraternal organization of men dedicated to the principals of Charity, Fraternity, Unity and Patriotism. The most important of these is charity.
Current Activities: Visit our website and discover a variety of program services and activities to help our Parish, school and community. Yes! We do conduct Social Events for our Council, Parish, and Community! Our success today, as it has from our beginning of our Council in 1991, comes from our involvement and commitment to Church, community, Council, family and youth.
We have 275 men of all ages that belong to our Council. Brothers can participate in 24 major service events ranging from parochial services in the Church building to Lenten Fish Fries and Spaghetti Dinners in the Family Center to sponsoring sports tournaments in the school gym. Our Council has awarded $10,000 in College scholarships for graduating high school seniors in our Parish and community. Our deep involvement and support of residents in our community with intellectual disabilities has raised tens of thousands of dollars for Columbus Hope Foundation that provides funding for the Program for Exceptional People (PEP) here in the Low Country. We provide support to Diocesan Seminarians and FOCUS Missionaries at various Universities and Colleges in the United States. We are dedicated to a Culture of Life from pregnancy through senior living.
Our Council supported our International Brother Knights in the Ukraine and Poland by raising $17,375 for the Ukrainian Solidarity Fund. We also supported our Brother Knights in the United States that have been severely affected by Hurricanes and Tornados. During the 2021 - 2022 Fraternal Year, we dispersed $66,700 to the various charities in the Low Country, domestically and internationally.
