Father Seyfried Council #821
Service to Church and Community
Come Join the Knights!
The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic men's fraternal benefit society that was formed to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works.
The history of the Order shows how the foresight of Father Michael J. McGivney, whose cause for sainthood is being investigated by the Vatican, brought about what has become the world's foremost Catholic fraternal benefit society. The Order has helped families obtain economic security and stability through life insurance, annuity and long-term care programs and has contributed time and energy worldwide to service in communities.
The Knights of Columbus has grown from several members in one council to more than 14,000 councils throughout the United States, Canada, the Philippines, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Panama, the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, Guatemala, Guam and Saipan. Through 2010, the Knights worldwide have collected and distributed in excess of $155 million for charity and contributed over 70 million hours in volunteer service.-Knights of Columbus website.
We are fortunate to own a building with facilities on two levels conveniently located across the street from St. Joseph's Church. A very close working relationship between the church and our council has benefited both organizations. Our hall is also available for member and community rentals.
