Knights of Columbus

The Columbiettes are an international body of Catholic women who are formed with the approval of the Knights of Columbus Council, with which it is affiliated. Their purpose is to stand ready at all times to give service and assist them when needed. Its works are spiritual, social and charitable. The Columbiettes are ordinary ladies who are proud of reaching out and helping those less fortunate by meeting the needs of the people in their communities and around the world. They are also committed to the preservation of family life. Our size doesn't alter the fact that we are an organization that addresses the religious needs of the Church and Community where we reside and work.

St. Vincent de Paul Society
The St. Vincent de Paul Society is a Catholic lay organization that leads men and women to join together to grow spiritually by offering service to those who are needy and suffering in the tradition of its founder, Blessed Frederic Ozanam, and patron, St. Vincent de Paul. Vincentians witness God’s love by embracing all works of charity and justice. The Society collaborates with other people of goodwill in relieving need and addressing its causes, making no distinction in those served because, in them, Vincentians see the face of Christ.
