Knights of Columbus
The Knights of Columbus organization was founded in 1882 by Fr. Michael McGivney as a fraternal benefit society to provide benefits for the widows of its members while offering fellowship among Catholic Men. The Knights of Columbus has grown into a fraternal order with more than 1.5 million members located around the world. These individuals donate over 100 million volunteer hours and millions to charitable causes.
Here at Saint Christopher’s Parish, we are active with St. Vincent DePaul, Holy Name Society, as ushers and other parish groups. We sponsor Free Throw Contest, Food and Toiletry collections, Intellectual Disability Drive and other charitable works. These are just a few of the great works of our members and families.
If you and your family would like to learn more about the Knights of Columbus, please feel free to speak to any of the council knights or call Louis Vidales at 773-414-3275 or William Spies at 708-307-4037. We look forward to volunteering with you in the future.
