The Knights of Columbus are Catholic gentlemen committed to the exemplification of Charity, Unity, Fraternity, Patriotism and defense of the Priesthood. The Patrick Cardinal O'Boyle Council #11302 of the Knights of Columbus has been serving the Parishes of St. Peter, St. Dominic, St. Joseph and St. Vincent de Paul since 1994. The Order is consecrated to the Blessed Virgin Mary and is unequivocal in its loyalty to the Pope, the Vicar of Christ on Earth. It is firmly committed to the protection of human life, from conception to natural death, and to the preservation and defense of the family. It was on these bedrock principles that The Venerable Fr. Michael J. McGivney founded the Order over a century ago and remains true to them today.
