Purpose: The Knights of Columbus is a fraternal organization of Catholic men dedicated to the core principles charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism. The order was the inspiration of Father Michael J. McGivney back in 1881. Pope Benedict XVI declared Father McGivney venerable on March 15, 2008. If Father McGivney is eventually canonized he would be the first American born priest to be so honored. Please check www.kofc.org to learn more about the history of the Knights and the benefits of membership.
Membership: World-wide there are over 15,000 Knights of Columbus councils with about 1.8 million members. Council 10184 is the local Knights of Columbus Council here at St. Thomas More. We currently have 120 members and Father Hunke is our chaplain. Our council focuses its attention primarily on the needs of our parish and our school.

Meeting Schedule: The second Tuesday of the month at 7:30pm. Council officers meet at 7:00pm ahead of this general meeting. In January our "Knights and Wives" dinner replaces this regular meeting. In July we hold a family potluck instead of our regular meeting.
