St. Michael Catholic Church

Knights of Columbus


The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic men’s organization focused on charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism. We are family-oriented and engage in programs that support our church, our priests, our faith, our community and right to life.

If you are interested in becoming a member, or would like more information, please contact Membership Director, Gary Weik, at 817.691.0854, or speak to a Knight at one of our monthly parish breakfasts after the 7:30 AM and 9:00 AM Masses. This is an opportunity to enrich your life in faith and service to our church and community, while enjoying fellowship with member Knights and families.
