A message from our General Agent Phillip Stackowicz:


Where can you find an opportunity to help yourself, your family and your Church at the same time?  Answer:  The Knights of Columbus


The Knights of Columbus is not your average company. It is one of North America's largest life insurers, one of the world's most ethical companies, an international Catholic fraternity, and a multi-billion-dollar donor to charitable causes. With the Knights of Columbus, you can make a difference for your community, your Church, and your family. 


Due to our tremendous growth, the Knights of Columbus is looking for a good Catholic gentleman to join our full-time Insurance sales force to serve our members and their families in the greater Northwest Indiana region. By joining our sales force, you receive:

Extensive training, a secure territory with professional-level income potential, incentive bonuses, health and retirement benefits, and continuing education opportunities.


If this sounds like something you would like to explore for yourself, or if you know a Catholic gentleman that might be perfect for this opportunity, please call (574)282-1082 or email me at


Thank you and God Bless!

Good news Brother Knights, we will begin our rotation of Council Social Meetings starting in July with the first social meeting at the LOFS 19th Hole on July 28th, 2021. All social meetings are on the 4th Wednesday of the month. See you there.

We will hold our annual Tootsie Roll drive on May 8th to support other enabled individuals in our usual locations. We need help manning each location and our Grand Knight is asking for volunteers to be in charge of each location. 

The council also needs to raise funds for our general account so we can support organizations in need. We are looking for ideas for fundraisers and all ideas will be considered.  Please contact our Grand Knight Jim Quirk with your fund raising ideas.

Now more than ever, we need to help protect our Catholic families. I take heart knowing that since the pandemic hit, Knights around the world as well as in our area have mobilized to Leave No Neighbor Behind, putting their faith into action to serve those most in need.

However, we need more brother Knights to step up and carry on the vision of our founder, Blessed Michael McGivney. That's why I'm reaching out to you today for help.


1.       Brother Knights, please visit Knights of Columbus Careers to consider becoming a Knights of Columbus field agent and carry on Father McGivney's mission in this special way.


2.  Brother Knights, you can also contact me directly at 574-282-1082 or so that you can learn more about a career as a Knights of Columbus field agent.


3.       Please pray for our continued success in fulfilling the mission of our founder, Blessed Michael McGivney.


Thank you for all that you do. Please reach out to me for any additional information.
