The Knights of Columbus is the world’s largest lay Catholic organization, with more than 1.8 million members around the world. The order was founded 130 years ago in 1882 by Venerable Father Michael J. McGivney at St. Mary’s Church in New Haven, Connecticut. The original intent to provide welfare and security for families during times of sickness and death has grown so that in recent years, the Knights have donated more than 70 million hours of volunteer time and $158 million to charity. Here are some of the activities you can expect from our St. Anthony Knights:
Lenten Fish Fries
Help prepare, serve, and/or clean up after Lenten fish fry meals that are a major fundraiser for the organization.
Tootsie Roll Drive
Sell Tootsie Rolls to help raise funds for the disabled.
Help prepare, serve, and/or clean up brunches after mass that raise funds to support a variety special causes.
Nationals Race Parking
Assist in taking money and supervising parking lots during Nationals race events.
