Knights of Columbus
Msgr. Jerome Reddy Council #6569
All the good works we do are informed by our four core principles:
Our Catholic faith teaches us to “Love thy neighbor as thyself.” Members of the Knights of Columbus show love for their neighbors by conducting food drives and donating the food to local soup kitchens and food pantries, by volunteering at Special Olympics, and by supporting, both spiritually and materially, mothers who choose life for their babies. Knights recognize that our mission, and our faith in God, compels us to action. There is no better way to experience love and compassion than by helping those in need, a call we answer every day.
None of us is as good as all of us. Members of the Knights of Columbus all know that – together – we can accomplish far more than any of us could individually. So we stick together…we support one another. That doesn’t mean that we always agree or that there is never a difference of opinion. It does mean that – as a Knight of Columbus – you can count on the support and encouragement of your brother Knights as you work to make life better in your parish and community.
The Venerable Michael J. McGivney founded the Knights of Columbus, in large part, to provide assistance to the widows and children left behind when the family breadwinner died – often prematurely. The Order’s top-rated insurance program continues to do this today, as do individual Knights, who last year gave more than 10 million hours of their time to assist sick and/or disabled members and their families. In the Knights of Columbus, we watch out for and take care of one another.
Members of the Knights of Columbus, be they Americans, Canadians, Mexicans, Cubans, Filipinos, Poles, or Dominicans, are patriotic citizens. We are proud of our devotion to God and country, and believe in standing up for both. Whether it’s in public or private, the Knights remind the world that Catholics are called to take our civic responsibility seriously.

The Knights of Columbus is a service organization.
This year we are especially happy to announce our new initiative: Faith in Action.
Our goal is for men to lead their family in service—not leave their family for service.
We want to serve and support every aspect of parish life. We will be collaborating with other parish ministries and service groups, as well as long time partners such as the St. Vincent de Paul Society and 4th Degree Assembly #3299. Our outreach will include other parishes, Catholic Charities, missions in our area, and international missions in need. Last year through your generous contributions and gracious support of our events and initiatives, we raised and distributed over $22,000.
We are the Knights of Columbus, Council #6569. Join today at KofC.org/JoinUs

FAITH IN ACTION ~ 2019
4th Degree John Paul II Assembly #3299
The 4th Degree is the highest Degree of Knighthood. The Knights work diligently to protect faith in God and loyalty to our Country; with fidelity and devotion we constantly fight to protect against wrongdoers who are denigrating our Church and our Country by performing abortions on the unborn children; the motion picture and entertainment industry that defames our Religion and our Priests. We are vigilant about pornography which corrupts the morals of our youth. We protect our Priests against offenders. We protect our military troops and those who serve against slander and degradation.
The Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States originated on Columbus Day, 1892; and at that time contained no reference to Almighty God until in New York City on April 22, 1951, the Board of Directors of the K of C adopted a resolution to amend the Pledge of Allegiance as recited at the opening of each of the meetings of the 800 Fourth Degree Assemblies of the K of C by the addition of the words, “Under God”, after the words, “one nation”. The adoption of this resolve by the Supreme Board of Directors had the effect of an immediate initiation of this practice throughout the aforesaid 4th Degree Assembly meetings. The 4th Degree Knights encountered many defeats and after a hard fight with Congress, the President, the Speaker of the House, and to each member of both Houses of Congress finely won. To this day, the Knights, have engaged in a constant fight to keep wrongdoers from eliminating the words, “UNDER GOD”, in our Pledge of Allegiance.
