Council Announcements


The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic lay fraternal organization, founded in New Haven CT in 1882 by the Venerable Father Michael J McGivney.  The J.H. Newman College Council of Holy Spirit Parish Newman Center at the University of Kentucky is an active group of Catholic men; both student & resident parishioners. For 2014 – 2015, our Grand Knight is Student Samuel Meffert.  We strive to uphold the values on which the Knights were founded. KofC at UK is a fun and engaging opportunity to socialize and serve the Catholic Church.


We assist in Church & Community Service and sponsorship of UK Student Events. It is our great honor to have Father Al DeGiacomo, our pastor, named Knights of Columbus 2013 Chaplain of the Year for the Diocese of Lexington.
