The Knights of Columbus, a national organization for Catholic men 18 years of age or older, was founded in 1887 by Father Michael J. McGivney. The purpose of the Knights is to help our members be steadfast in their faith and guided by the principles of unity, charity, fraternity and patriotism. The Knights undertake educational, charitable, and welfare projects in their parishes and communities. Knights at St. Thomas the Apostel belong to the Madonna Della Strada Council, which serves St. Thomas the Apostle and several other parishes. We sponsor and support a variety of parish functions such as the annual summer picnic, as well as the Tootsie Roll drive to raise money for children with developmental disabilities and a raffle to benefit Catholic Youth Organization. Catholic men 18 years of age and older are invited to join.
