Welcome to the Knights of Columbus Kirkwood Council 2117.
Council 2117 was the proud recipient of the Knights of Columbus Columbian Award for fraternal year 2020/2021. This award recognizes excellence in Council programming and charitable outreach for the entire year.
To achieve this recognition we successfully conducted and reported more than four major programs in each of the Service Program categories: Faith, Family, Community and Life.
2023 SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM IS NOW UNDERWAY
The Knights of Columbus Kirkwood Council 2117 is pleased to announce the opening of the 2023 Scholarship Program offering $1,000 awards to a total of ten graduating 8th Graders from our served parishes (St Peter, St Gerard Majella, St Elizabeth) who will be attending Catholic High School in the fall.
This is an essay-based program designed to identify, recognize and reward students who demonstrate commitment to their education, their families and their Catholic faith.

CHARITY OF THE MONTH
Council 2117 solicits recommendations from members of the Council for worthy charities for the Council to support with a $500 unsolicited contribution. At each monthly business meeting, a random drawing is made from the eligible charities to select the Charity of the Month. Any member who would like to propose a charity candidate should contact GK Keith Beardslee with the name, contact information and mission description of the organization.
MAN-THE-CAN FOR ST TERESA & BRIDGET (on-line contribution)
The second Sat/Sun of each month you will find Council 2117 Knights at the exit doors at St Peter Church with the read and white St Teresa & Bridget Food Pantry donation cans.
While the donations from parishioners at these Man-The-Can Masses are generous, you may not always have cash on hand. We have established a way for you to make one-time or regular recurring donations on-line through the St Peter website to be sure and support this effort year round.
To donate online, CLICK HERE to be connected to the St Peter Church online donation page and scroll down to the Events section where you will find the button to "Make a Donation" to St Teresa & Bridget Food Pantry.
Make your "virtual" donation now and please consider establishing a recurring monthly donation to support this important effort year round.
