Queen of All Saints Knights of Columbus conducts many activities which benefit the parish, youth, pro-life, vocations, and community causes. The Knights were founded by Fr. Michael J. McGivney in 1882 on the principles of charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism. We are also very devoted to our Blessed Mother and pray the rosary at every meeting. There are over 1.8 milllion members in over 14,000 councils in 13 countries.
QAS KoC Projects and activities include:
blood drives, Tootsie Roll Drive, fish fries, 3rd grade basketball tournament, youth essay contest, drug awareness poster contest, free throw contest, Road Rally, prayer services, White House Retreat, soccer challenge, Roses for Life, the Religious Information Bureau, the Christmas outdoor nativity, and book drives. We celebrate the 5th Sunday of the month by attending Mass together and providing the Extraordinary and Hospitality ministers. The Knights are also trustees for the Catholic High School Endowment Fund which provides scholarships to eighth grade students who will be attending Catholic high schools.
Benefactors include seminarians, deaconate program, Cardinal Glennon Hospital, support of Fischer House for Veterans' families, Special Olympics, scouting programs, Youth Ministry, QAS School and PSR, and Teams Assist Special Kids (TASK).
