The Knights of Columbus is the world’s largest Catholic family fraternal service organization that was formed to organize the “able and willing” in assisting those in need. Today the Knights of Columbus contribute time and energy worldwide to service in communities and parishes. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works. 

When Fr. Shibu  Kallarakkal arrived to become Pastor of our new parish, Mary, Mother of the Redeemer, he received the First Degree on August 24, 2013.  Seen here are photos of the presentation of his certificate (pictured with Salvatore Ficaccio).

“Our Council has achieved numerous milestones in the many activities such as volunteering at pancake breakfasts, Song for Rachel, St. Mary College, improvement to the Church, clearing and cleaning outside of the Church premises, Ministries, family gathering and helping our priests. The great work of these Brother Knights, in fostering family, charity, fraternity never ends,” says Sal Ficaccio, District Deputy 25 (Alberta/NW Territories)/Charter Faithful Navigator for Fr. Valentino Alberton Assembly.  “The membership of our council keeps growing, already reaching 100 members. The vision of our Founder Fr. Michael J. McGivney is to have every Catholic male join the Knights so we are always looking for new members. The Council meets every Third Tuesday of the month and new members are always welcome.”
