. . . . TO BE A KNIGHT?
It means a faith-centered life! We are a group of Catholic men who share a desire to live our faith to become better husbands, fathers, sons, neighbors and friends.
OUR MISSION. . .
Together, we work toward the benefit of our parish and our community through service to others. We are Catholic men who live and grow our faith through Charity, Unity, and Fraternity.
OUR VISION. . .
To build a bridge for members that will deepen their spiritual growth through a focus on the Eucharist, Prayer, and Personal Reflection leading to a renewed commitment to charitable service.
A FRATERNAL ORGANIZATION. . .
A Catholic brotherhood of men changing the world! Our goal is to help men, their families and our parish to grow closer to Christ. The result is a group of men that share a set of common values and principles that foster fellowship and growth for its members.
OUR CHARITIES - We serve many less fortunate in our parish community. A few examples are: Special Olympics, Coats for Kids, Special Needs Children, Respect for Life, Habitat for Humanity, Catholic High School Scholarships, Support of Vocations, and Veterans' Memorial Grave Wreaths.
OUR FUNDRAISERS - It is the strength of a team working together that makes a difference. Our members know that the journey to finding your best-self starts by giving your best-self to others. We raise funds with the financial support of our parish and community through our annual Golf Tournament, Cruise Raffle, Tootsie Roll Drive, Baltimore Orioles Spring Training Baseball Concession Stand Pancake Breakfast, and others.
