Family Life Ministries

The family is the most intimate experience of Church; the place where love, forgiveness and trust should first be encountered. The family has often been called "The Domestic Church", where the gospel should be first preached. Our parish encourages families, in whatever form your household may be, to gather together to help each other grow in faith and love. The more good examples we have, the better example of Christ we can be to the world. Sometimes it begins with the simple things such as eating together as a family. Studies have shown that a family that eats together three times a week or more have stronger family ties, the children do better in school and practice their faith. Check out more ideas here.

Knights of Columbus Council #3818

Knights of Columbus | Second Monday of the Month | 7:00 PM

Fellowship? Fraternity? Brotherhood? Camaraderie?

Yes, these are fitting descriptions. But there is something deeper, something more profound beyond the meaning of these words. That "something" is the relationship with God, and the bonding between men who experience that relationship.

Membership in the Knights of Columbus embodies first and foremost the presence of God and the principles of Christianity. God's presence enriches the bond that exists between Catholic men of the Knights. He is with us at every meeting, every sponsored event, every casual encounter with a Knight on the street, in a grocery store, at Mass. That connection is unspoken, strong, shared.

The Knights sponsor and are involved in numerous church and community events. Examples: monthly breakfasts after Mass, crab feeds, assistance at Christmas Mass, moving furniture for shut-ins, and so on. While participation in such activities is encouraged of the members, there are no minimums. You can be as active as befits your comfort zone.
