Consider joining the Knights of Columbus
At a recent state meeting for Grand Knights, the question was asked “do you feel your faith has been enhanced since you became a member of the Knights of Columbus?” For me, the answer is YES! Our programs are guided by FAITH IN ACTION. Faith programs allow us to work with our parishes in order to enhance the faith of members and our families and to be a positive influence within our parishes. Community programs focus on helping people in our community. Among other things, the Knights of Columbus as a national organization is the single largest financial sponsor of Special Olympics. Family is the third piece of Faith in Action. As members, our focus is on strengthening our own family life and providing activities to strengthen family life in our communities. The fourth piece of Faith in Action is Life. We have been able to financially contribute to Right to Life and women’s shelters.

By having opportunities to live our faith, how can your personal faith not be enhanced?I came across the short piece reprinted below when I was reading about Knights of Columbus programs. This describes perfectly my own feelings about being a Knight.
WHY JOIN THE KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS?
Imagine being part of an organization that fills your heart with the joy of giving to others and the feeling that comes with making a difference. Knights are Catholic men, 18 years of age and older, who are committed to making their community a better place, while supporting their Church. Being a Knight is more than camaraderie, it is being involved with your community. It is supporting your local Catholic Church while enhancing your own faith. It is about protecting and enhancing your family life.
