CHRIST, PRINCE OF PEACE COUNCIL 12986 CHARITABLE CONTRIBUTIONS, 2019 - 2020

As you all know, the first, foremost and most important principal of the Knights of Columbus is Charity.  When our Founder, Fr. Michael J McGivney founded the Knights of Columbus in 1882, his purpose was to establish a Fraternal Organization to help and support the widows and orphans of its members.  Through the Knights of Columbus Insurance organization and other charitable outlets, the Knights of Columbus have given away billions of dollars.

 

The Christ, Prince of Peace Knights of Columbus Council 12986 was chartered in 2000.  Since that time our council has donated thousands of dollars to various community, parish and other organizations.  It is through the efforts of our members who volunteer their time, talents and treasure while working at the Lenten Fish Fries, Golf Tournaments, Tootsie Roll Drives, and other events that are sponsored by the Knights that make these funds available for us to donate.

 

From July 2019 to June 2020, our council made donations totaling over $23,000.  Organizations receiving donations include:

Since a more informed member will most likely prove to be a more active and involved member, every new Knight should be introduced to council officers and Service Program directors as soon after his First Degree as possible, and a brief description of the office or position should be made at this time.  The following descriptions may be used to introduce new members to the variety of Knights who serve the local council.
