Knights of Columbus - Holy Angels

Council #12104

The Knights of Columbus is a fraternal organization whose first pillar is charity: charity of action and charity of giving.  The Knights perform acts of charity to support 5 ministries: church, community, council, family, and youth.

Holy Angels Council #12104 was chartered in 1997 by a group of men determined to make a difference at St. John - Holy Angels Parish and its community.  Since then, our council has grown steadily to over 100 members.  We meet at 7:00 PM on the first and third Tuesdays of the month in the Athletic Building.  Meetings usually last until 8:45 PM with time to socialize with fellow Knights.  Our meetings are small enough to be friendly and informal, yet large enough to provide activities to satisfy members of any age or interest.

No time to attend meetings?  You can still be active in the Knights by participating in church, community, youth, or council activities. Many of our Knights are not able to attend regular meetings, but do help out with two programs a year.  Some programs are just an hour or two.  Your time is your gift, and whatever time you are able to provide will be appreciated.

Consider joining the Knights as a way to formalize the acts of charity that you may already be giving, or as a way to discover how you can make a difference in people's lives in our community and parish.  All that is required is to have a sense of humanity, compassion, and a desire to love your neighbor as yourself.
