REVISED Color Corps Manual
This is the Fraternal Calendar for the 2019 - 2020 year.
Council #13448 was formed in January 2004, and is now composed of over 100 members. We are an active group of motivated Knights from all ages and walks of life.
We regularly welcome new members that are practicing Catholic men to join our ranks. If you even thought of joining the Knights come to our fourth Thursday social meeting (August through June) where the council members gather for socializing. You don't need a sponsor, you don't need to know anyone, prospective members just come join us. To find out more information about the Knights of Columbus at St. Mary Parish and the next social please contact Phil Blomeke Grand Knight or David Kukral, Membership Chairman. For members of other Councils or if transferring in, our business meeting is held in the school lunchroom on the 2nd Thursday, monthly at 7:30 PM.
The Knights were founded in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney to serve the widows and their children in the parish. Now 1.8 million members worldwide with 15,000 local councils. Knights are dedicated to the principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and Patriotism and participate in numerous charitable activities each year. K of C activities benefit their parish and all faiths of the community, brother Knights strive to deepen their faith as Catholic men, and throughout the world serve those most in need, as Jesus did!

A new and convenient way to keep track of your volunteer hours is here!
Each year, our Financial Secretary asks each of us to give him the total number of volunteer hours worked.
If you are involved at Church as a Eucharistic Minister, Lector, etc., those hours count!
If you volunteer your time with the St. Vincent DePaul Society, those hours count as well.
If you visit the homebound on first Saturdays, count those hours as well.
On your smartphone or on your computer, please go to www.kofcmobile.org and click the "Record Volunteer Hours" button.
Those hours are all easily entered by members of Councils using the UKnight Interactive Network (the people who host our website) and then tracked, accumulated and totaled for our Council.
We also are asking our members to set a monthly goal for themselves, and our website tracks their hours and reports their progress to them individually throughout the year.
You can see the Goal Setting page in the Members Only section.
