Knights of Columbus
The Knights of Columbus is an international Catholic Men's Organization. The Order was founded in Connecticut by Father Michael J. McGivney on March 29, 1882. The Knights of Columbus began so that men could work together to serve their parishes and communities, support each other in faith and protect the well being of their Catholic families.
Becoming a Knight of Columbus can transform your life. The St. Joseph Chapter of the Knights began in 1983 and is very involved in service to the parish and community. We meet once a month on the first Thursday at 7:00 pm in the church basement and discuss parish projects and upcoming events. Plus, we have a lot of fun and fellowship and great food at our meetings. Please call Don May at 815-678-4169.
