The Knights of Columbus Ladies Auxiliary is a growing and important part of the Knights of Columbus family. They enjoy, help with the planning, and are a large part of the execution of all the family, church, and fundraising activities of their councils. Together with the men of their councils, which they support, the Ladies Auxiliary members are an example of their Catholic faith.
As a member of the Knights of Columbus Ladies Auxiliary, you can enjoy and participate with your family in all the many projects and benefits that the Knights participate in the community. You also can help independently by sponsoring seminarians, Hope House, Agape House, Vitae and many other charities. You will feel good because you will know you made a difference.
Membership in the Knights of Columbus Ladies Auxiliary is open to wives, mothers and daughters (age 17½ years or older) of Knights of Columbus in good standing, any practicing Catholic female age 17½ years or older and members of Religious Orders, in good standing with their Order.
Application blanks are available from any member of the Ladies Auxiliary.
The Knights of Columbus Ladies Auxiliary members pray the Rosary before each monthly meeting (3rd Tuesday at 6:30, meeting at 7).
The Knights of Columbus Ladies Auxiliary has a calling committee to notify the membership of a Knight or his Spouse in distress and to initiate prayers.
