Welcome to Knights of Columbus Council #8022 at St. Mary of Vernon.

The St. Mary of Vernon chapter of the Knights of Columbus is a Catholic men’s organization serving our parish and the surrounding communities.  Charity is the cornerstone of all Knights of Columbus activities.

Knights' Activities at St. Mary of Vernon

Being a Knight is more than camaraderie; it is being involved with our community, supporting our Church and doing charitable and community work while enhancing our faith.  Parish activities include the blood drive and the annual award to altar servers at the end of their service period and our annual Independence Grove Bike Ride in June.

Knights help Sharing Hands by delivering donated furniture to needy families.  The Knights support other parish programs, including Youth Ministry programs and the Men’s Club’s annual Halloween Party.  The Knights also participate in community service projects, and have adopted Highway 45 in front of the Church to keep the community clean.

Donate Your Cell Phone

The Knights of Columbus are collecting used cellular phones for recycling! We receive up to $26 for each cell phone donated.  Don’t know what to do with those old cell phones you have lying around? Here’s your answer!  Sorry, no printer cartridges accepted with this program.  Recycling will not only help us raise money—it’s also good for the environment!  Look for the collection boxes in back of church.
