Knights of Columbus


The Knights of Columbus is a fraternal organization for Catholic Men founded in 1882. Being a Knight is more than camaraderie; it is being involved with your community; it is supporting your local Catholic Church, while enhancing your own faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life. The activities of the Knights fall into the following three categories:

  1. Spiritual
  2. Social
  3. Service

The Valmeyer Council 13840 became a charter in March 2005.

The Council meets at St. Mary's on the second Wednesday of each month.

Pictured above are the visiting 4th degree knights with Fr. John and the 2006 first communion class.

Grand Knight: Dennis Gerli (618)935-2120
