Membership in the Knights of Columbus is open to men 18 or older who are practical (that is, practicing) Catholics in union with the Holy See.
This means that an applicant or member accepts the teaching authority of the Catholic Church on matters of faith and morals, aspires to live in accord with the precepts of the Catholic Church, and is in good standing in the Catholic Church.
Membership in any of the organizations of the Free and Accepted Masons make a person in-eligible for membership in the Knights of Columbus.
The St. John Council is a service organization, which helps various causes. They support the Pro-Life movement, they are involved in helping the mentally challenged, and they are active with the youth of the parish. They frequently provide Sunday breakfasts and other meals in the Parish Center in a social gathering for parishioners and the public. They make themselves available to the Pastor to provide assistance in whatever way he needs help.
