The council is looking for volunteers to fill the following roles. These roles will be responsible for creating and directing programs for our council. I have included below a brief description of each role. Any council member in good standing is eligible for these roles. Please note, though, that the positions of Community Director and Family director require the knight selected for the role to take an online youth protection course and submit to a background check. If you are interested in taking on one of these roles, please let me know by Sunday, July 29th. You may contact me at the phone number and email address in my signature.
Faith Director
As a fraternal organization of Catholic men, the Knights of Columbus has strong ties to the Church. At all levels, from the local councils to the Supreme Council, the organization has the volunteer power, communications abilities and organization to help strengthen the Church while offering members and their families to grow in the faith. Through the sponsoring of Church-related activities the members of the Knights of Columbus continue to show that they are the strong right arm of the Church.

Family Director
Families are the foundation of society and are at the core of the Knights of Columbus. With this in mind, councils regularly sponsor activities that allow families to spend time together in volunteer activities, faith initiatives and social events. In addition, the Knights of Columbus regularly recognizes the importance of the family and outstanding families. In addition, since its beginnings, the Order has always stood ready to help protect the widows and orphans of its members.
Life Director
The Knights of Columbus remains firmly committed to defending the right to life of every human being, from the moment of conception to natural death. Countless councils and individual Knights conduct projects aimed to build a culture of life in their individual communities. One of the most successful of the Order’s initiatives in this area is the Ultrasound Initiative though which councils (both state and local) partner with the Supreme Council in provide sharing the cost of purchasing ultrasound machines for pregnancy resource centers.
