Copyright 2012-2018 | Knights of Columbus Council #7826 | Of The St. Thomas More Church 
Our   Catholic   faith   teaches   us to     “Love     thy     neighbor     as thyself.”     Members     of     the Knights     of     Columbus     show love    for    their    neighbors    by conducting    food    drives    and donating    the    food    to    local soup      kitchens      and      food pantries,    by    volunteering    at Special     Olympics,     and     by supporting,     both     spiritually and   materially,   mothers   who choose    life    for    their    babies. Knights     recognize     that     our mission,   and   our   faith   in   God, compels   us   to   action.   There   is no   better   way   to   experience love   and   compassion   than   by helping   those   in   need,   a   call we answer every day.
None   of   us   is   as   good   as   all   of us.   Members   of   the   Knights   of Columbus     all     know     that     together   –   we   can   accomplish far   more   than   any   of   us   could individually.      So      we      stick together…we      support      one another.    That    doesn’t    mean that   we   always   agree   or   that there   is   never   a   difference   of opinion.   It   does   mean   that   as   a   Knight   of   Columbus   –   you can   count   on   the   support   and encouragement        of        your brother   Knights   as   you   work   to make   life   better   in   your   parish and community.
The     Venerable     Michael     J. McGivney   founded   the   Knights of   Columbus,   in   large   part,   to provide     assistance     to     the widows      and      children      left behind      when      the      family breadwinner     died     –     often prematurely.   The   Order’s   top- rated       insurance       program continues   to   do   this   today,   as do   individual   Knights,   who   last year     gave     more     than     10 million   hours   of   their   time   to assist     sick     and/or     disabled members    and    their    families. In    the    Knights    of    Columbus, we    watch    out    for    and    take care of one another.  
Members    of    the    Knights    of Columbus,   be   they   Americans, Canadians,   Mexicans,   Cubans, Filipinos,            Poles,            or Dominicans,       are       patriotic citizens.   We   are   proud   of   our devotion   to   God   and   country, and   believe   in   standing   up   for both.   Whether   it’s   in   public   or private,    the    Knights    remind the      world      that      Catholics support   their   nations   and   are amongst the greatest citizens. .
