For the 4th consecutive year, Texas has topped the field for volunteer hours and charitable donations among all the areas where the Knights of Columbus are active. In 2017, members in Texas volunteered almost 5 million hours in service to their parishes and communities and donated almost $10 million to charity. Almost $1 million went directly to our Bishops’ designated diocesan ministries. From all across the organization, almost 2 million members in 17 nations volunteered over 75 million hours and donated over $185 million to charitable causes, setting new record highs in 2017.

Family life is under siege in the secular popular culture. Traditional marriage is redefined by the courts and family values are openly challenged in the media. Christians and people of good will are praying and working faithfully for a crucial change in direction. Join The Austin Chapter Knights of Columbus for the Annual Mass for Families celebrating the family and praying for God’s protection of the essential unit of our human society. This special Mass and reception will be held at St Albert the Great in Austin on Saturday June 30th at 10:00 AM. Join us for this powerful event.
Brothers, our “June” meeting will be held Wednesday, May 30. We are rescheduling from the usual date because St. William is not accepting facility reservations during the first week of June. This will be an important meeting as officer elections will be held. Please mark your calendar and plan to attend. Usual time and location – 7:30 p.m. at the Fr. Michael J. McGivney Pavilion at St. William. Thanks!
In order to provide opportunities to bond with our sons, the Council is planning events designed to appeal to younger Knights or future Knights. You can also invite your daughters, wives, friends…but especially consider inviting someone who might one day become a Knight of Columbus.
The events are a rock climbing adventure and a zipline experience. You can find the details by clicking on the links:
