Members also serve as Directors for various areas of parish life including: COUNCIL, CHURCH, YOUTH, FAMILY, COMMUNITY, MEMBERSHIP, RETENTION OF MEMBERS, CULTURE OF LIFE. These Directors help develop and organize activities and information sessions for the Council.

The main goal of the Knights of Columbus is to help our parish priests ensure that parishioners encounter the most spiritual experience possible. Knights live their Catholic Values by promoting this goal through acting as ushers, lectors, Eucharistic Ministers at celebrations, and helping in the renovation, maintenance and upgrading of Church facilities through fund-raising programs and activities, as well as lending supporting to other ministries of the parish. When the parish priest asks, the Knights are there to answer with their support.

The Knights also extend this support to the local community as they see their duty as one of ensuring that all community members have the right and opportunity to live decent, dignified, productive lives. Knights, among other community-based activities, hold a Christmas party for under-privileged children, bring Christmas cheer to seniors and shut-ins in the community, donate winter coats to needy children, support the Special Olympics of Ontario, support Right to Life organizations, as well as organizing activities for the students of our local Catholic Elementary schools, and are always willing to answer the call for support when requested.

Any man of the parish, 18 years of age and older, who is interested in becoming a member of the Knights of Columbus in St. Joseph’s parish, please see the bulletin, parish website, or contact the church office for contact information. General Meetings take place on the 3rd Thursday of each month in Room 2.
