Welcome

The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic, family, fraternal and service organization. The key elements of our Service Program are Church, community, council, family, pro-life, and youth activities. The State College Knights of Columbus council has donated over $152,000 and countless volunteer hours to various charities since 2009. The major fund raising activities are weekly bingo games, dinners served at the hall and manning two concession stands at Penn State football games.


Equally important, these activities provide opportunities for fellowship and social interactions among the State College Knights of Columbus and their families. A complete list of our donations and activities would be difficult to enumerate, but a description of our major and reoccurring activities is below. Please join us in keeping these activities going and help us do more for our Churches and community.

Announcements...

Fr. Antony Suderson, our Council's Chaplin has been reassigned to St. Benedict's in Johnstown. He was kind enough to come back and celebrate Holy Mass for us prior to our Business Meeting on Wed. We wish him all the best and are thankful to have had him as our Council's Chaplain.  Following the

meeting a reception was held with a cake and a gift of a set of four stoles for Father to use at Masses.  A great turnout for both the Mass and the meeting, we wish Fr. Antony all the best on his new assignment.  Father thanked all for our commitment and friendships and helping him to better

understand our culture, he also said a plaque would be added to the new bell tower at his parish in India thanking Council #4678 for it's contributions
