We are proud of our tradition of being Soldiers for Christ..
A Knights of Columbus council can work wonders; in fact, with its many programs, it can help change the community, town, city or neighborhood in which you live.
However, a successful Knights of Columbus program depends on people taking the initial idea, modifying it to suit specific situations and local needs, then implementing the program in the way it works.
The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic, family, fraternal, service organization. This theme permeates the entire Service Program: all Church, community, council, family, culture of life, and youth activities.
Many years ago in another life, (High School shop class) Brother Knight Bill Kehrman was introduced to the wonders of woodworking. Bill really enjoyed using the lathe. The machine did the work and Bill just held the tools and sandpaper. That led to his current therapy sessions of pen making. There are so many different kinds of wood with its own internal beauty. Bringing out that beauty gives Bill peace and calm. Bill started turning pens about 10 years ago and found there are many styles available. He orders pen kits with all the metal and plastic parts and assembles them using wood or Corian blanks fitted with a brass tube and turned on the lathe. Bill is set up in his shop (man cave) to create these pens, styluses, and other turnings.
Now Brother Bill would like to have others benefit from his hobby. He is making these pieces available at cost for the benefit of the Knights of Columbus Charity programs. Your help in this is greatly appreciated.
To order a pen; pencil and/or stylus for $28.00 each contact Brother Bill Kehrman @ firstname.lastname@example.org or any of the Knights Offices list on the "Contact Us" Page.

presented 9 Relics for review
Our St Mary 4th degree Assembly 3471 along with some 4th degree members of our neighbor assemblies assisted with the handling and presentation of the Holy Relics at St Mary May 24, 2016.
The Holy Relics are used to bring together a program of meditations and prayers commemorating the events of the Passion of Jesus Christ.
All the music, readings and the meditations were beautiful and inspiring. The Church was well attended.
Our Council 3340 received several awards on May 7th at the Colorado State K of C Convention. They included taking first place in the Gold Division (councils with over 200 members). Congratulations!!
We also took second place in total points over all of the Colorado councils, and received the Colorado State Family Activity Program Award for our fishing derby last summer. These awards couldn't have been realized without the efforts of everyone involved. Thank you to each and everyone of our contributors!!!
