The Knights of Columbus is a fraternal organization whose purpose is to aid its members and their families, also to assist in the aid of sick, disabled, and needy families. This is accomplished through volunteerism, be that providing physical labor or assisting in raising funds which will benefit those in need. With many programs available each Knight can find a way to help their brothers, and/or provide for those that cannot help themselves. Brother Knights may also partake of a world renowned insurance program which is available to them. All Catholic men eighteen (18) years of age or older wishing to become a Knight and help in their works should contact me at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Any Third Degree member of the Knights of Columbus in good standing is eligible for membership in the Fourth Degree. The primary purpose of the Fourth Degree is to foster the spirit of Patriotism by promoting responsible citizenship and a love of and loyalty to the Knights' respective countries through active membership in local Fourth Degree groups called Assemblies. Certain members of the Fourth Degree serve as honor guards at civic and religious functions, an activity that has brought worldwide attention to the Knights of Columbus. An opportunity to meet is on the 2nd thursday of the month in Church of the Ascension hall. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you are interested in becoming a Fourth degree member at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Deacon Dick Smith



Dear Brother Knights, The first guiding principal of our order is Charity. Over the years we have been very charitable to many organizations and people in need. This is a testimony to your efforts and generosity. Pope John Paul II reminded us that to put the principal of charity into practice, we must pray daily and make the Eucharist and all the sacraments the foundation of our lives in Christ. In other words before sharing charity to others, we must welcome Christs mercy and love. All of our charitable work is evidence that this love has taken root in our hearts. An opportunity to for us to gather is on the first Thursday of each month, as well as, on the third Thursday of the month, when we recite the Rosary in the church at 7pm. We have had good participation and our prayer is that many more of our brother knights and knights ladies will join us. Please continue to pray for me as I pray for you and your families.

God Bless,

Deacon Dick Smith

Sir Knights Ladies Group




The Sir Knights Ladies is looking for a New Lead to take over the coordination of Events.  Please contact Anna.

The Sir Knights Ladies support our husbands and the work that the Knights of Columbus do in the community. We are here to assist them in fundraising, as well as Church / Community activities. As social planners, we plan and coordinate 4 large socials for the Knights. So far, we have had an "Aloha for the Summer Social", a "Welcome Back Halloween Costume Social", "The Christmas Social" and a "St. Patricks Day Social". Our hope that with these social events and the support that we bring to our husbands through the community, that we can create a better awareness to the public of the role of the Knights of Columbus and the work they do for the community. We also hope that the fun socials help to promote more membership and bonding within the Knights group. We do not currently have any regularly scheduled meetings, however; we do attend the Knights social meetings on the third thursday of each month. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at
