Knights of Columbus

The Knights of Columbus is an international, fraternal organization of Catholic men who are committed to service to the Church and community. There are four main points that we all believe and use as our guide: Charity, Unity, Faith and Patriotism. The Knights believe that faith without works is dead (James 2, 14-17). Any Catholic man age 18 and older is invited to join the Knights.

Each council is chartered to the Supreme Council, Hartford, Connecticut. Each council adopts one or more parishes to focus their efforts on improving the parish spiritually and in any other way needed. However, each council is also committed to serving their community and nation as well. We have a strong belief in Pro Life, in helping the disabled, in promoting our faith and honoring our veterans.

Mary is our patron and intercessor. We pray the Rosary to honor Mary and ask for her help and guidance.

Our council name is Knights of Columbus, St. Boniface-Erie, Council number 13427. The St. Boniface Knights are proud to continue the vision of our founder, Father Michael J. McGivney who chartered the first Council on March 29, 1882 at St. Mary’s Parish, New Haven, Connecticut.

Meetings are held the first Thursday of each month, at 7:30 p.m., the school cafeteria. Please contact Grand Knight, Paul Vallimont at 825-3212, or any Knight for more information.
