We also do all the annual KOFC events, including Keep Christ in Christmas Poster Contest, Free Throw Championship, Soccer Challenge, Coats for Kids, Corporate Communion, March for Life, the Campaign for People with Intellectual Disabilities, and much, much more.
From charity for worldwide causes, to helping closer to home with volunteer activities, becoming a Knight of Columbus can transform your life.
