The Knights of Columbus is the world’s largest Catholic men’s service fraternity.
Foundedby Father Michael J. McGivney in 1882
The order serves its parishes, the community at large, and its Brother Knights, by:
Fundraising for worthy causes
Providing volunteer services at parish, community, state, national, and international levels.
Various insurance and investment programs available only to its members, their spouses and families.
The history of the council includes:
Council 14730 of the Knights of Columbus was established at St. Louis Catholic Church in 2009, with Charter Grand Knight Jim Buzzella and developed through the efforts of second GK Kevin Kelleher, and those who have followed. The establishment and support of the Perpetual Adoration Chapel at St. Louis, the annual Fourth of July picnic at the church and the involvement with many of the parish ministries.
The council has benefited from efforts and contributions of many Brother Knights:
Brother Leo Corradini’s legendary Italian dinners, Brother Marco Leyte – Vidal’s golf tournament, Brother Michael McKeever’s recruitment efforts, Brother Hal Kurz selflessly hosting our website for its first 10 years, and many others.
We welcome you to browse our website, and familiarize yourself with the many service opportunities within our council specifically, and our organization in general!
Our monthly meeting is on the second Thursday of the month at 7:30 PM, at St. Louis Catholic Church Classroom H-B.
