WHAT DO KNIGHTS DO?
The Knights of Columbus' activities can be divided into four areas: Council, Social, Spiritual and Service. Council activities encourage fraternity and friendship among knights. Social activities are put on by the knights so that members of the charter parish may meet, mingle and have fun. Spiritual activities include attending mass as a group, and ushering at Sunday mass. Service activities are service projects such as re-covering the kneelers in the church, gathering food for the local hungry, as well as gathering essentials, such as soap, shampoo and toothpaste for those in homeless shelters. These are the activities of the Knights of Columbus.
WHAT DO I GAIN?
The Knights of Columbus is a non-profit organization. Tangible profits are few for members, in abundance for the community. But members receive many intangible profits. Knights meet new people and form new friendships. They increase their spirituality and grow in their understanding of and relationship with God. They also gain the satisfaction of having done something good for others. And, Fourth Degree Knights get swords!
