Religiously Devoted, Patriotically Proud
For most men who follow Jesus, there comes a time when duty extends beyond our own lives, beyond how we lead our families, and into how we serve our fellow man in our communities.
For the Knights of Columbus, civic involvement comes in many forms. Members take part in community patriotic observances. Knights can always be found participating in, or leading, community observances of Independence Day, Flag Day, Veterans Day, and other ceremonies that honor the nation and the men and women who have fought and died to protect it.
Veterans Administration Volunteer Services
Council 4999 members volunteer both time and money at the V. A. Hospital in Riviera Beach.
Support our Troops
Members of our Council assist in collecting food and personal items for the local Support Our Troops affiliate in North Palm Beach. The organization assists in feeding and housing veterans who are challenged in transitioning back to civilian life. All recipiants are vetted through the local V.A. hospital.
Co-Sponsored Seminarian Program
The Knights of Columbus has established a new scholarship program to help fund the education of seminarians preparing to become Catholic chaplains in the U.S. Armed Forces.
