Knights of Columbus through our volunteerism strive to be true assets to our communities and our nation. Councils sponsor a variety of activities beneifitting communities. Including:
- Knights Night at the Ball Park - Tentatively scheduled for July, 2019 at MGM Park in Biloxi; more details to follow. We also have a canned food drive associated with this function. Any food collected is donated to our local St Vincent dePaul Society for distribution to needy families. This will be the 3rd year for this activity. It is an opportunity for our Knights to spend a day with their family, friends, and brother Knights as well as contribute to a worthy cause.
- Blue Mass - my personal favorite. An opportunity to honor our law enforcement personnel, fire fighters, ambulance attendants and other on whom our lives and the lives of our loved ones might one day depend. I have information on how to set this up and what may be needed which I will be happy to send to any interested council.
- Safe Environment Program - The Knights of Columbus are dedicated to providing a safe environment for children and other vulnerable persons. To this end, many of our members (state officers, program directors, grand knights, etc) are required to undergo Safe Environment Program training. However, any knight may take this training, and I encourage them to do so. The link is on the Supreme web site.
