The Knights of Columbus: In Service to One. In Service to All.
The 24 Hour Knight
"I don't have time to give to the Knights, so why should I join?"
It's a common concern among many men that just don't think they have the time to be part of the Knights of Columbus. Imagine, if you will, that I tell you that it only takes 24 hours a year to be a Knights of Columbus member, and that you make a positive difference in your Church, yourself, and your community. Even with this minimal commitment, you can be an important part of a council, and reap the benefits of what membership in the Knights of Columbus has to offer you and your family.
Here is the breakdown:
12 hours a year reading your weekly parish bulletin, the state & local council newsletters, the Diocesan newspaper, the Columbia magazine, and surfing the state council and Supreme Council websites.
2 hours a year volunteering at the council's annual drive for people with intellectual disabilities.
2 hours a year attending, with your family, two council corporate Communions or prayer services at your parish.
2 hours a year on a council-sponsored Church, community, council, family or youth project of your choosing.
2 hours a year attending a council meeting. (If it's a well-run interesting meeting, you might be back for a second!)
4 hours a year enjoying (again, with your entire family) a council social function, such as a dinner, dance, picnic, etc.
There are 8,760 hours in a year. By giving the Knights of Columbus 24 hours (less than .3%), YOU CAN BE A BETTER CATHOLIC, A BETTER PERSON, A BETTER HUSBAND, AND A BETTER FATHER. Think of the difference that the Knights of Columbus can make if you join us. Know that it only takes 24 hours a year to make a difference in your Church, in yourself, and in your community.
