Mission and Vision
Boerne's St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church Knights of Columbus Council, with over 300 members, joins 1.9 million members around the world who are investing our time, effort and resources into our values of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism.
Together, we’re empowering Catholic men to live their faith at home, in their parish, at work and in their community.
OUR HISTORY AND HERITAGE
Founded on the principles of charity, unity and fraternity, the Knights of Columbus was established in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary's Church in New Haven, Conn., and a group of parishioners. Their intent? To bring financial aid and assistance to the sick, disabled and needy members and their families.
Charity is at the heart of our work and our faith — and it always has been. For the Knights of Columbus, charity means supporting a virtually boundless variety of projects.
Our commitment to charitable service is just one of the many ways that we express our Catholic faith. We're here to build a daily bridge back to what matters, for our members and fellow Catholics.
