Our Council Business Meeting is at 7:00pm on the fourth Monday of every month at our new home, St. Luke's, and lasts approximately one hour. All members are encouraged to attend.

Our Council Officers, Trustees and Committee Chairs Meeting is held on the 2nd Sunday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at St Luke’s.  All members are welcome to attend.

Any Catholic gentleman age 18 and older is invited to join the Knights.
