knights of columbus

our mission

Founded on the principles of charity, unity and fraternity, the  Knights of Columbus was established in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven, Conn., and a group of parishioners. Their intent? To bring financial aid and assistance to the sick, disabled and needy members and their families.

The Wallis Knights of Columbus seeks to support the local parish of Guardian Angels Church and the community, with special assistance to the Brother Knights and their widows after they pass.

2022 Scholarship Recipients

One of the blessings of being a Knight is the opportunity for our children and grandchildren to earn a scholarship to attend post high school education. 

To earn a scholarship the applicant must submit an application by March 31 of the current academic year and be a high school senior. Scholarships are limited by Council funds and not all applicants may be selected, but we try our best to support our children. 

Scholarship applications and the guides are available from the Brazos High School Counselor or may also be downloaded from this link.

Saint Vincent de paul donation

The Council received an appeal from the Saint Vincent DePaul Society requesting that all Brother Knights donate three canned/dried goods in December 2022 to help replenish their food pantry.  The Council agreed to publish the request and accept donations at the Christmas Party and December meetings.  In addition, the Council approved a motion to donate $600 to the Society to further their mission of assisting the poor and desperate.
