Why you should become a knight?  The Knights of Columbus is not just a fraternity in name.  It is a brotherhood of Catholic men who each play a part in improving the world around them, one community at a time.  They stand together in faith, dedicated to uphold the principles they cherish while lending their support and strength to parish, home, and fellow knight.  Join them in making a stand, and you can discover how easy it is to make a difference in our life and that of others.  Contact your local Knights of Columbus Council or parish office for further information.

"The refusal to take sides on great moral issues is itself a decision.  It is a silent acquiescence of evil.  The tragedy of our time is that those who still believe in honesty lack fire and conviction, while those who believe in dishonesty are full of passionate conviction."  --Venerable Fulton J. Sheen
