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.

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.
We wish to express our appreciation to St. Francis parishioners, friends, donors, and volunteers, who made our recent annual Spaghetti Dinner and Silent Auction an enormous success.
All proceeds benefit the mentally and physically challenged. Thank you for your contributions!
Look for us again in 2020!
