Jubilee: Knights of Columbus Ladies

Knights of Columbus Ladies

The Knights of Columbus Ladies of Council 11372 formed in 1994, the same year the Council was instituted. The Ladies follow the lead of the Knights in working to serve Church, Community, Youth, Council, and Family. Plus, also manage to have a lot of fun working together and have and continue to make lasting friendships! Membership is open to all ladies 18 years of age and older who are parishioners of St. Francis de Sales – regardless of whether your husband is a Knight or not.  Dues of $1 per month are paid annually in July.

There is a monthly meeting – on the 3rd Monday at 7:30 p.m. in the Knights Hall at St. Francis de Sales. Typically, the meeting runs about an hour.  At our meetings, we discuss upcoming projects and activities, many times welcoming an outside group to come in talk with us.

We strive to support several groups with proceeds from our various fundraisers. Here at St. Francis, we regularly support the Youth Group, St. Francis Outreach, the Church, our sister parish in Haiti, Scouts, etc.  To support many of our projects, we have several fundraisers throughout the year. Fundraisers in years past have included Longaberger Basket Bingo, Dinner Bingo, Wine & Beer Tasting, Jewelry Shows and Events.  We’re also known for our delicious baked goods, and we usually hold at least one bake sale each year.Our next fund raiser will be our 3rd Annual Holiday Luncheon Bingo on November 19th.   Call Connie at 410-370-4104 for tickets and more info. 2016- 2017 KC Ladies Officers are: President: Cindy Rock; Vice President: Kathy Batdorf; Secretary: Anne Mangones; Treasurer: Barbara Arnold. The Parish is a better community for all the work of the Lady Knights.  By Cindy Rock
