We are Knights. Men committed to acting on our faith and helping the world. Men whose strong dedication to serving the Church is rooted in our Order’s humble beginnings. When Father Michael J. McGivney invited a few parishioners to gather in the basement of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven, Connecticut, his hope was to unite men in their faith and provide for Catholic families in times of need. Guided by four core principles – charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism – other Catholic men soon followed suit and helped lay the foundation that has allowed the Order to flourish.
The Knights of Columbus is an organization of Catholic men and their families. Our Council offers many worthwhile projects and activities for the parish and community. The St. Gabriel Council of the Knights of Columbus is an active volunteer organization that raises awareness for needy causes and generates much needed funds to support a variety of charitable activities including the Pregnancy Crisis Center, Fayetteville YMCA, St. Vincent de Paul Food Pantry, Horses & Warriors (Horses for Heroes), Joseph Sam's School for Special Needs Children, Christmas for Kids (Adopt a Family), SWAP (Seniors & Widows Assistance Program), Seminarian Support and the Special Olympics of Fayetteville. We raise funds through a variety of methods including our annual Rummage Sale with St. Vincent de Paul, Program Book sales at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, raffles, golf tournaments and our Tootsie Roll Drive.
We meet regularly on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 6:30pm, Lyke Hall, lower level, 135 Antioch Rd., Fayetteville.
