Knights of Columbus & Ladies Auxiliary

Our parish is host to two vibrant organizations of Catholic men and women who are dedicated to the service of both Parish and Community life.

Ladies Auxiliary

The Ladies Auxiliary’s primary purpose is to actively promote the principles of the Order {charity, unity, fraternity & patriotism}, and to aid and foster the charitable activities, purposes and functions of the Knights of Columbus Council 11136.

The Ladies Auxiliary will contribute their time and talents through charitable, spiritual and social works in order to support the needs of the Saint Francis de Sales parish and church sanctioned ministries.

Meetings are the 1st Monday of the month, 7pm Rosary in the Chapel;  meetings are 7:30pm in the Parish Hall

Knights of Columbus

Mission Statement and Vision (adapted from the Virginia State Council):

In keeping with our principles of charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism, our mission shall be to provide Catholic inspired leadership, continuing education to our members about the Catholic Faith, and support to the clergy and parish of St. Francis DeSales.

It is important to promote a volunteer work ethic that emboldens successful fraternal actions emblematic of our founder the Venerable Fr. Michael J. McGivney.  As part of this mission, we must see that there is in place a means to evaluate the current needs of both the young people we are attempting to recruit and the older members who serve so well.  We must give all our volunteer Knights appropriate orientation when they join, reasonable assignments, ongoing training, and have in place other necessary procedures to see that they are successful, recognized, and fulfilled in their volunteer activities.

These efforts shall be consistent with the Virginia Council By-Laws and the Supreme Council Charter Constitution and Laws, in the execution of programs and activities of our Order.

Our vision, in keeping with the vision shared by our founder, is to continue the proud tradition, established and maintained for over 100 years, of activities and works that exemplify to an exceptional degree the principles of charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism through a strong, well organized, and functioning Council.

Business Meetings:  2nd Monday of each month, 7pm Rosary in the Chapel (open to all); meeting at 7:30pm in the Parish Hall (open to all Knights in good standing who hold a current membership card while the doors are closed)

Fraternal Meetingstypically on the 4th Monday of each month – activities will vary; locations are dependent on each activity; invitees may include current and prospective Knights and their families
