Council 12327 at Saint Anthony's, located at Saint Anthony of Padua Catholic Church, 7801 Bay Branch Drive, The Woodlands, Texas, 77382, was founded on November 21, 1998.
The Knights of Columbus are Catholic men, 18 years of age and older, who are committed to making their community a better place, while supporting their Church. Being a Knight is more than camaraderie; it is being involved with your community; it is supporting your local Catholic Church, while enhancing your own faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life.
Our organization is fortified by its past, and driven by its goals for the future. It is through these five service areas – faith, community, family, youth and fellowship – that we truly make a difference.
FAITH: As Knights, our faith is our foundation. Dedicated to the Catholic Church’s growth and her good works, we support religious outreach, promote vocations, and provide financial support for seminarians and postulates. This way, we help support our Church and strengthen our personal faith.
COMMUNITY: By actively and financially supporting Special Olympics, by leading the charge in pro-life, or by safeguarding the environment, Knights all over the world have helped countless communities prosper.
FAMILY: As fathers and husbands, serving our families is not only part of what we do, it is part of who we are. Most importantly, as Knights, we are able to provide assistance and support to each other and our families whenever needed.
YOUTH: Helping today’s youth become tomorrow’s leaders is also a huge focus of the Order. Through many sponsored activities, our Council assists youth in building a strong sense of civic and religious responsibility.
FELLOWSHIP: To be a Knight means to believe in each other as we believe in ourselves; realizing that by creating strong, social and supportive local councils, we help create a stronger Order worldwide and ensure an even stronger future for our Church and our Order.
