Fellowship

To be a Knight means to believe in each other as we believe in ourselves.Councils hold activities that foster fraternal bonds between members.Much of our fraternal activity involves the members doing things to support the parish or some other charitable work for our community or those who are identified to be in need.A favorite of members is to cut firewood in the fall to help those who need wood to heat their homes in winter.
