Knights of Columbus

The Knights of Columbus, a men’s fraternal and charitable organization, was founded in 1882 by Venerable Father Michael J. McGivney. Father McGivney started the Knights to change a man’s life, deepen and enrich a man’s faith, strengthen his family, and build better lives for those who so desperately need help.

The Holy Spirit Council of the Knights of Columbus is a group of men dedicated to charitable service to the community, acts of faithful support to the parish, and social support of our members and their families.  

Our actvities include sponsoring pancake breakfasts, bingo nights, food drives, youth free-throw and soccer-goal tournamets, blood drives, document shredding, communal roasaries, and other events.  The Holy Spirit council especially sponsors “Project Manger”, which provides cribs and infant supplies to area mothers in need, and “Project 911” which provides minor home improvement or handyman services to area poor, elderly, or disabled.

We meet the first and third Tuesday of each month at 7:30 in the Quinn Room (Meeting Room 3) of the school. The first Tuesday is our monthly business meeting, and the third Tuesday is for social interaction and fellowship.  

For more information, please contact Grand Knight Tom Johnson at [email protected]


You can join Holy Spirit Council by June 30th and pay no dues until January 2021.

The council annual dues are $32.00 plus a voluntary contribution to 3 charities totaling $6.65.
