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.  This simple gathering has expanded to a worldwide organization that assists wherever trouble exists in the world.

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.  We provide support for area organizations such as the Scouts, pregnancy centers in Austin and Fort Bend counties, scholarships, vocations with support for seminarians, and more!  We are always seeking good, Catholic men to join our group to help us in our mission.

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.

knight of the Month

Hayden Vykukal was selected as the May Knight of the Month.  Hayden has been a fixture at our Wild Game Supper and Fish Fry events since he was taller than a table!  He and his siblings’ help has been a large part of our success and we were ecstatic when he joined the Knights.  He is the future of our Council.  Congratulations, Hayden!

 

family of the month

May’s Family of the Month is the Myles and Courtney Marek family!  Myles is a faithful Knight and Courtney and their children are always around when help is needed.  Their children are altar servers and are usually at the 9:30 am mass.  Myles serves on the School Board and is an important part of the Wallis community.
