Our Knights of Columbus Council is involved in numerous activities throughout the year that benefit both our community and parishes.  While this list is not all inclusive; below is a sampling of events that we participated in during the past calendar year. 

The Knights help others in many ways; sometimes it is through our collective manpower as an organization, and sometimes it simply involves fundraising activities.  Throughtout the year, the St. Charles Council 12497 Knights of Columbus members donate their time and talents to helping individuals or organizations that need our assistance.

There is one frequently heard comment that occurs regulary when the Knights are together discussing an activity or event in which we have just participated.  That comment in its various forms is, “I can’t believe that we accomplished all of that, in such a short amount of time.”  Hearing statements like that makes the Knights proud that we can count on our brothers and their families to make what can initially seem overwhelming at times to in actuality be something that is very simple and achievable.

Strength in both numbers and committment; that is “the St. Charles Knights of Columbus Council 12497.”
