All the good works we do are informed by our four core principles:
Charity – We serve a growing number of people and causes important to the Round Rock area with an emphasis on truly making a difference. We place a high priority on serving of those who are in need be it financially, physically or due to a loss of a loved one.
Support for our church is always at the forefront of our attention, including the work and comfort of our bishops, priests and those in religious life and formation. In each of our charitable activities, we demonstrate reliable efficiency and effectiveness. We always give respectful credit to those who aid us in our work. While desiring to unceasingly demonstrate our love of neighbor, our focus on family requires that we neither forget that “charity begins at home.”
Unity – None of us is as good as all of us. Members of the Knights of Columbus all know that – together – we can accomplish far more than any of us could individually. As a member of the Knight of Columbus we can count on the support and encouragement of all our brother Knights as we work to make life better in your parish and community.
Fraternity – Our members expect to enjoy camaraderie and increasing ties to the community by contributing to the success of our “unified” efforts. As brothers, our members are especially encouraged to become well-acquainted with the families of fellow members. We promote the ongoing growth of authentic caring within our membership by sponsoring social, recreational, service and spiritual programming. Mindful of the unrelenting flow of sand through the hourglass, we both honor fallen brothers and pay heed to the needs of their survivors.
Patriotism – We take an active role in the development within our region of an increasing appreciation for the duties, responsibilities and blessings that flow from our republican form of democracy. We robustly support the participation of our members and their families in the electoral process. We remain watchful for opportunities to appropriately honor our fellow countrymen at arms, or otherwise promoting domestic safety and tranquility, and seek to support the success of their missions whenever possible. Importantly, we encourage all members to speak out for and to protect the right of religious liberty, freedom to worship and freedom of conscience – all equally important Constitutional rights that are endowed to us by our Creator
