Scheduled Meetings: First Monday of month at 7:00 p.m. in the Family Center.
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….and, yes, social events! Our success today, as it has from our beginning in 1991, comes from our involvement and commitment to church, community, council, family and youth.
300 men of all ages belong to our council. Brothers can participate in 24 major service events ranging from parochial services in the church building to fish fries and spaghetti dinners in the family center to sponsoring sports tournaments in the school gym. $8,000 in scholarships: $4000 for 8th graders attending John Paul II high school & $4000 in college scholarships for graduating high school students. Our deep involvement and support of residents in our community with intellectual disabilities has raised tens of thousands of dollars. We are dedicated to a Culture of Life from pregnancy through senior living.
Inspired by the charity project offered by parishioner, Jack Gigante, a high school sophomore at John Paul II, our Knights have joined their efforts to collect unused suitcases and tote bags for foster children throughout the state. Jack's donations were accepted in April and a new collection date for the K of C is being planned for June. Watch here for more details. Visit the SC Suitcase Project webpage for more information.
