About Our Council
The Christ the King Council was founded in July 2002 through the efforts of Joe Ramirez. Our council dedicates itself and believes in what the Knights of Columbus Organization professes and stands for unity — fraternity, charity and patriotism. Through our activities, the Council funds various projects around the parish. Additionally, we serve as Ushers, Eucharistic Ministers, Lectors, Religious Education Teachers, and in many other areas.
The Council is looking forward to a great year. We hope to count you as part of our membership. If you are interested in becoming a Knight or have any questions, please contact us by contacting the Grand Knight listed above. We will be more than happy to visit with you about joining the Knights of Columbus Organization.
