Knights of Columbus

COMING UP:

Our parish joins with St. Joseph, Trenton, to form the Msgr. Eppenbrock Council #3615. This chapter is active in surrounding community hosting blood drives, supporting various charitable causes, and serving in a variety of ways.

The Knights of Columbus was originally organized to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works.

The history of the Order shows how the foresight of Father Michael J. McGivney, whose cause for sainthood is being investigated by the Vatican, brought about what has become the world’s foremost Catholic fraternal benefit society. The Order has helped families obtain economic security and stability through its life insurance, annuity and long-term care programs, and has contributed time and energy worldwide to service in communities.

From the few members in the first council, the group has grown to more than 14,000 councils and 1.8 million members throughout the United States, and around the world. Locally, Msgr. Eppenbrock Council comprises members from two Trenton parishes: St. Timothy and St. Joseph. Newcomers and their families are always welcome.
