Knights of Columbus: Council #10705
Are you a Catholic man interested in helping those in need, serving your parish, and growing in your faith? Consider joining the Knights of Columbus council at St. Mary Parish today!
Our council is dedicated to giving back to our community and parish, while building a community of Catholic men, through works of charity, faith, and fraternity. Our regular activities include preparing food once a month for a local homeless shelter, organizing the weekly “Coffee Hour” program after the 10:00 AM Mass, assisting in the upkeep of parish grounds, coordinating the annual Christmas Giving Tree, and hosting tours and events for pilgrims to St. Mary Parish.
In addition to our general meetings, which are held the first Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM in the Church Hall, we host a number of fraternal events and activities for our members and their families.

Following in Fr. McGivney’s vision of providing care for widows and orphans, the Order also provides top-rated life insurance for its members and their families, with over $100 billion of protection in force.
