Knights of Columbus
The Knights of Columbus is the largest organization of Catholic laymen in the world.
The St. John's Knights of Columbus Council members are dedicated to the advancement of our Catholic Family Life and assisting our pastor in the countless number of Church functions and activities. The local council raises monies through activities and donations to help the diocesan seminarians, Birthline of El Dorado, Bethlehem House, annual Boys State program, state Mentally Handicapped Programs and Kansas Olympic Program, and Catholic Youth Organization (CYO). In addition, our members donate countless hours of their time and talents to parish organizations and apostolates.
We meet the third Tuesday of the month at 7:00 pm in the school basement room #12. We invite any Catholic gentlemen to join us in the Knights of Columbus. Just contact:
