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 $250,000 and over 20,000 volunteer hours to various charities in the last five years. The major fund raising activities are breakfasts/dinners served at the OLV Activites Center 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.

Feast Day of Blessed Michael McGivney was celebrated Saturday Aug 13th at OLV. The 9am Mass was celebrated in honor of Blessed Michael McGivney by Brother Knight Fr. George our Pastor. Immediately following Mass there was a Holy Hour during which the Knights led a Rosary. The hour was ended with Benediction.
For the second time in a year, our Council participated in Habitat for Humanity. These Brother Knights gave back to the Community using their time and talents. This is who we are called to be as we provide Service to others. Special thanks to those Brothers who were able to participate. This year six members of Council 4678 painted the entire inside of a brand-new Habitat for Humanity house in Bellefonte on Saturday July 16th 2022. Shown are: Joe Reese, Mike Patrick, Tom Hauser, Dennis Marince, Mark Thorwart, and Ed Hughes.
