KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS AT ST. MICHAEL CATHOLIC CHURCH
Being a Knight at St. Michael’s is an opportunity for men of faith to help the parish and the community become better places by continuing the mission of Christ. Since our founding in 1882, charity has been the first principle of the Knights of Columbus. From international charitable partnerships with Special Olympics, the Global Wheelchair Mission, and Habitat for Humanity, to our own Food for Families, Coats for Kids, and partnerships with the Memphis Food Bank and Catholic Charities of West Tennessee, the opportunity to improve the lives of our neighbors is extensive. Make a difference by joining more than 1.9 million Catholic men whose principal work involves helping others in need.
We understand you’re already so busy you can’t imagine fitting in one more thing. You may have a young family and may consider the Knights as something you’d like to do “when the kids get older.” Being a Knight while your kids are young is a great opportunity to set an example of service that will remain with them all their lives. In the St. Michael’s council, we have many men who are balancing home, school, civic, and church activities. There is no expectation you’ll make every meeting or help at every event. We are grateful for whatever time you can give. Your participation supports the growth of this parish, affecting programs available both now and in the future.
