The Knights of Columbus

Council 12921, Wallace NC

Who are the Knights of Columbus?  What do they do?

Per our founding principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and Patriotism, The Knights of Columbus follow the Bible:  Matthew 25:40 “I tell you, in so far as you did this to one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did it to me.”

We are a group of practicing Catholic Men who have stepped up to help the Parish, the Community, and those people who need our assistance.  The Knights are Church Council Members, Church Maintenance Managers, Bishop’s Annual Appeal solicitors, Lenten Supper Organizers, Food Bank Helpers, Prisoner and Hospital Chaplains, Eucharistic Ministers and Sunday Readers.   

Being a Knight of Columbus is all about giving back to your community and building bonds of brotherhood.  Come join us!  If you would like to be a part of our efforts to support our parish and our local community contact Will Vertolli at 910-285-1943 or at
