The Knights of Columbus is an international service organization founded on the core principles of charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism. At St. Jude Parish, our Knights organize fundraisers, offer assistance to the pastor and to our school, help build and maintain strong bonds between members of our parish and work with others in supporting those in need in our community, our country and the Holy See. The St. Jude Counsel of Knights welcomes any man, 18 years of age or older, who is a practical (that is, practicing) Catholic in union with the Holy See. Our new Council has grown from 11 to 24 Knights over the past year. If you are interested in learning more about becoming a Knight at our parish please contact: Chet Kempinski @ email@example.com.
