knights of columbus
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.
- Council Meeting – June 5, 2023 at 7:00 pm (Social at 6:00 pm)
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.
Wallis Knights of Columbus may avoid publicity in general, but you can find here the things we do for our local parish, the Church of Guardian Angels in Wallis, Texas, and our community.
