Our Knights have 2 monthly meetings. A members only meeting on the 1st Wednesday of the month, and then an open social meeting on the 3rd Wednesday of the month. The Knights don aprons and spatulas flipping pancakes every Second Saturday to raise money for local Morrow county charities. Late every fall the knight will distribute hams and baskets of food to families in need in the community, each year they distribute literally over 1,000 pounds of food. In the summer the Knights are often seen working at the Farm days, County Fair, and Mt Gilead Corn Festival.
History of the Knights
The Knights of Columbus is the world’s largest Catholic fraternal service organization. Founded by Michael J. McGivney in New Haven, Connecticut, in 1882, it was named in honor of the explorer Christopher Columbus. Originally serving as a mutual benefit society to working-class and immigrant Catholics in the United States, it developed into a fraternal benefit society dedicated to providing charitable services, including war and disaster relief, actively defending Catholicism in various nations, and promoting Catholic education. The Knights also support the Catholic Church’s positions on public policy issues, including various political causes, and are participants in the new evangelization.
