Knights of Columbus Council 12296 The Knights of Columbus is the largest Catholic men’s fraternal organization in the world with 1.75 million members. We exist to support the Church and sponsor programs of evangelization, Catholic education, civic involvement and aid to those in need. We are a people of life and are committed to the “Culture of Life”. Our activities are focused on pro-life, the family, the elderly, the disabled, Catholic education and vocations, to name a few.
We are dedicated to the service of our Holy Father Pope Francis and through him our archbishop, the Most Reverend Terrence Prendergast and our pastors, Fr. Tim and Fr. Lawrence. We work closely with our pastors to ensure that we are fully aware of their pastoral goals for the parish.
Our council meets on the second Monday of each month at 7:00 pm on the 3rd floor at St. Maurice Parish.Membership in the Knights of Columbus is open to practical Catholic men in union with the Holy See, who have reached the age of 18 years as of their last birthday.
