Knights of Columbus
The Rev. James V. Rogan / Father John P. Halpin Council #1816 is a Catholic men’s fraternal organization supporting the needs of St. John of God Parish and the local community. The council supports youth and young adult programs during the year. We also provide scholarship awards. We assist many groups with assistance throughout the year. We assist those who need assistance through the Parish Outreach program, food collections, blood drives, and other community events. During the Thanksgiving season we sponsor a Thanksgiving Day dinner for anyone within the community. We open our doors to all faiths; this is a day to be family for anyone who is alone, or has no family to celebrate the day.
Time Commitment: 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month at 8 PM
