We are an organization of Catholic men, whose foundation is based on the principles of Unity, as a Catholic lay society; Charity, to those in need; and Fraternity towards fellow Knights. The principle of Patriotism was later added to reflect the love of one’s Country.
In 2005 Fr. Tim met with several men from our parish. They decided it was time to establish a Knights of Columbus Council here at St. Bede’s. Our Council was dedicated on March 14, 2005 and has grown to 80 members strong. Over the past several years our council has been very active supporting the parish, the Lake County community, and the church trough charitable works.
Although we have accomplished a lot since 2005, we still need new members with new ideas to keep our Council growing and vibrant. To become a member you must be 18 years of age, male and a practicing Catholic in good standing. You do not need to purchase a cape, sword, or regalia of the 4th degree to be a member of our council. If interested in joining us, please contact the Parish Office and leave a message for the membership director.
