Knights of Columbus
Since its founding in 1882, the Knights of Columbus has grown from several members to more 1.8 million men throughout the United States and thirteen other nations. “The Knights” are now the world’s foremost Catholic fraternal benefit society.
The Pittsburgh/East End Council is involved in a variety of activities which serve the Church and community. The Council supports the Bishop’s Project for Exceptional Children through fundraising, collects gently used children’s books and redistributes them, and supports the East End Community Ministries Food Bank. The Council conducts blood drives, collects used eye-glasses, and aids missionary efforts in Honduras. The list of activities and projects is as endless as are the needs of the poor.
These accomplishments are achieved when men come together united by the love of their Catholic Faith and of Christ. The sharing of that faith and love strengthens each man and that makes him a better person in all aspects of his life.
If you are a Catholic man over the age of 18, please consider joining the Knights of Columbus. The Pittsburgh/East End Council draws members from and serves the people of St Bede, Sacred Heart, St Raphael, St Rosalia and Immaculate Conception-St Joseph parishes.
Council #3530 meets on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at one of our parishes. The meetings rotate through the participating parishes. Meetings begin with an optional rosary at 7:00 p.m. Discussion of business starts at 7:30 p.m. The meetings conclude with refreshments and fellowship.
When you become a member of the Knights you are joining the largest Catholic lay organization in the world. You will be challenged to give of yourself but in the end will be rewarded with gifts that cannot be measured.
