Knights of Columbus
You and your family are invited to join the Knights of Columbus. The Knights of Columbus and the Auxiliary are a Catholic family non-profit organization dedicated to the virtues of charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism.
The Knights of Columbus began in 1882 and today there are more than a million and a half members in over 14,000 local councils. Blaine-Coon Rapids Council #5141 began in 1961 and the Auxiliary began in 1967. The Knights of Columbus donates nearly $140 million annually to charitable causes and reports over 40 million volunteer hours. Our council raises funds through our Lenten fish fries and our 2nd Sunday breakfasts. That money raised is given away to many of the events listed below.
The Knights of Columbus offers a wide variety of volunteer opportunities which support the Church and the community. Time commitments vary and the camaraderie and friendship from the group are immense.
The Knights of Columbus offers a low-cost group insurance and investment plans for the entire family. We meet in St. Timothy's Hospitality Center on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 7:30 p.m.
