The Knights of Columbus is an international Order of Catholic men who are called to lead with faith, protect our families, serve others and defend values in a busy changing world.
Our local council Monsignor A.X.M. Sharpe 600 will be holding a membership drive at all Masses the weekend of November 16 – 17. Whether you become an individual member or a member of our council you will find that Knights of Columbus membership brings Catholic men together in a powerful way.

On October 19th, the Michigan State Council Knights of Columbus sponsored “Coats for Kids”. OLR Parish Council; MSGR A.X.M. Sharpe 600 had several members participate in the event at St. Damien of Molokai Hall in Pontiac.
This program’s primary goal is to help kids stay warm in the winter when a child’s family does not have the resources to adequately meet this need. A warm coat means a child can more realistically attend school, go to after-school programs, fit in with other children, play and do all the things that kids do to be kids. In a very real sense, a warm winter coat means mobility.
Our mission is to make this seemingly small part of life a little bet easier for these families. The goal of the Coats for Kids program is to ensure that no child in North America goes without a coat during this winter season.
Through the dedication of councils across the United States and Canada, hundreds of thousands of new winter coats have been distributed to children since the program inception.
