WHO ARE THESE MEN THEY CALL KNIGHTS?
The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic, family, fraternal, service organization. We dedicate our time and resources to a number of local charities in our community.
If you are a practical Catholic gentleman, at least 18 years of age, you can become a member of the Knights of Columbus.
Today's young man has many commitments. From his duty to his family to his obligation to his workplace, there are constant calls on his time.
Being a member of the Knights is not as time consuming as some people may think. When men are asked to join the Order, we are only asking for 24 hours of their time each year in the following manner:
12 hours a year reading the weekly church bulletin, the state and local council newsletters and the monthly Supreme Council magazine Columbia.
. 2 hours a year volunteering at a council event of their interest.
. 2 hours a year attending two council prayer services with their family.
. 2 hours a year on a council sponsored family project or event.
. 2 hours a year attending one council meeting. If it is a good one, they will attend more.
. 4 hours a year attending a council social function with their family.
There are 8,760 hours in a year. By giving the Knights of Columbus 24 of those hours (less than 0.3 percent), a man can be a better Catholic, a better father, a better husband and a better person.
A Knights of Columbus council can work wonders; in fact, with its many programs, it can help change the community, town, city or neighbourhood in which you live. However, programs need people taking the initial idea, modifying them to suit specific situations and local needs, then implementing the programs in a way that works.
Our community offers limitless opportunity for action that can be seen, felt and Judged for its true worth; fight poverty, aid individuals in distress, plant a tree, sponsor a blood pressure screening, support law enforcement, campaign for every baby's right to life, help the aged. No matter what we choose, get involved!
