Join the Knights of Columbus

All Catholic men 18 and over are invited to join our Band of Brothers in support of charity and service to our parish and community!
It's never been easier to become a Knight. We offer free membership right now, and an easy online virtual admissions program. A special 12-month free online membership was extended through December 31. Just visit and enter the promo code MCGIVNEY2020. Don't forget to include Ascension Council #11139 on the form!
As a member, you can be involved as much as your time and interest allow. We support parish and community charities like the parish blood drives, a local food pantry, Special Olympics, and the famous "Tootsie Roll" drive for those with developmental disabilities. Our Ascension Council has raised and given away more than $21,500 since last July. We also support social events like bingo, parish breakfasts with Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny, and our popular annual golf tournament.
Wives of our Knights also have the opportunity to make connections and support charities through our Ladies Auxiliary.
Won't you consider joining the Knights today, to help for a better tomorrow? You'll become a better husband, father, and man of faith.
