The Knights of Columbus Council 15265


The Knights of Columbus is an organization dedicated to the service of our Holy Church and its clergy.  We serve God by serving others in need and in our parish ministries.

We have an open invitation for all practicing Catholic men ages 18 and over to join us.
Every Saturday prior to the 5 pm Mass we pray the Rosary, beginning at 4:30 pm.
Our business meetings are held on the 1st Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM in Meeting Room #2.

The Knights of Columbus offers free online classes for anyone wishing to know their faith better.  The Catholic Information Service provides full courses in PDF form and some are available as audio mp3 files.  The Catechism-based Luke E. Hart Course, the topical Veritas Course, and a fully searchable Online Catechism are all available at

Among our many ongoing activities are our Pancake Breakfasts to help raise money for our many projects.  Check out our weekly parish bulletin for announcements sponsored by the Knights.

Activities / Events:

It is that time of the year again when your Brother Knights are selling tickets for the annual State Raffle.  For the ticket price of $5.00, you have a chance to win an Alaskan cruise, a Caribbean cruise, or one of five $200 prizes.  Half of the cost of each ticket goes to help the State Council with their costs, and half stays here in the parish with your council.


Es esa época del año otra vez cuando sus caballeros de Brother están vendiendo boletos para la rifa anual del estado. Por el precio del billete de $ 5.00, usted tiene la oportunidad de ganar un crucero de Alaska, un crucero por el Caribe, o uno de los cinco premios de $ 200. La mitad del costo de cada boleto va a ayudar al Consejo de Estado con sus costos, y la mitad se queda aquí en la parroquia con su consejo.


Prayer for Our Country

God of all nations,
Father of the human family,
we give you thanks for the freedom we exercise
and the many blessings of democracy we enjoy
in these United States of America.

We ask for your protection and guidance
for all who devote themselves to the common good,
working for justice and peace at home and around the world.

We lift up all our duly elected leaders and public servants,
those who serve us as President, as legislators and judges,
those in the military and law enforcement.
Heal us from our differences and unite us, O Lord,
with a common purpose, dedication, and commitment to achieve liberty and justice
in the years ahead for all people,
and especially those who are most vulnerable in our midst.




Dios de todas las naciones,
Padre de la familia humana,
Te damos gracias por la libertad que ejercemos
Y las muchas bendiciones de la democracia que disfrutamos
En estos Estados Unidos de América.
Pedimos su protección y orientación
Para todos los que se dedican al bien común,
Trabajando por la justicia y la paz en el hogar y en todo el mundo.
Alzamos a todos nuestros líderes y servidores públicos debidamente elegidos,
Aquellos que nos servan como Presidente, como legisladores y jueces,
Aquellos en el ejército y la aplicación de la ley.
Cúraos de nuestras diferencias y uníos, oh Señor,
Con un propósito común, dedicación y compromiso para lograr la libertad y la justicia
En los próximos años para todas las personas,
Y especialmente aquellos que son más vulnerables en nuestro medio.
