 CATHOLIC DAUGHTERS

Catholic Daughters of the Americas – Court Saint Anne #2575 – was chartered on October 21, 2006. We donate to charities, provide opportunities for our youth programs and strive to “be helping hands” in our parish and community. Our members mainly attend Holy Spirit, but not exclusively. We meet at 9:00 a.m. on the second Saturday of the month in the Parish Community Center. Our court is involved in many ministries in our parish and in the community. Our meetings and membership are open to all Catholic women 18 or older.

 KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS

Founded in 1881, the Knights of Columbus is the largest Catholic Fraternal Organization in the world, with over 1.8 million members.  The order was founded by a Catholic priest, with several aims such as strengthening the faith of Catholic men, uniting them in service to the Church and community, and providing for the financial needs of families in the event that the father passed away.  Membership in the Knights is open to all Catholic men age 18 or older.

The main principles of the order are Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and Patriotism.  The financial strength of the Knights rests with its insurance program.  Protecting Catholic families with insurance has been a central part of the Knights mission since its founding.

The Knights supports all parts of parish activities. They provide financial support to Catholic educational institutions, members of the Clergy and Seminarians. They also serve the community through the Knights Community Hospital Equipment Lend Program (KC-HELP), which provides free in-home hospital equipment for anyone who needs the equipment if it is not covered by insurance.
