Founded in 1882 for the purpose of aiding widows and orphans left destitute and dependent on their local parish, the Knights of Columbus has grown to become the largest organization of Catholic men in the world with over 1.6 million brother Knights. St. Brigid’s Council has been recognized as one of the “Top Ten” councils in Ohio for several years. A year-round program of family, fraternal and service activities includes the annual Measure Up campaign for physically challenged children, the popular Knights’ Pancake Breakfasts, children’s Easter Egg Hunt, the Council Family Picnic, Roses for Motherhood, Clergy Appreciation Dinner, London Prison Ministry and the Couples’ Christmas Party. Membership in the Knights is open to practicing Catholic men age 18 and over. To get involved, contact the Grand Knights at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Men’s Spirituality Group
Men’s Spirituality Group’s purpose is to awaken, renew and grow the Catholic Spirituality of St. Brigid men. This includes the Annual Retreat, Coffee & Prayer (first and third Saturday of each month) and other Catholic faith opportunities for men of our parish. This group is sponsored by the Knights of Columbus, but membership in the Knights is not required for participation in the Men’s Spirituality Group.
