Who are the Knights of Columbus?
The Knights of Columbus St. Faustina Council 14217 is a Roman Catholic fraternal service organization dedicated to the principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism. Knights are Catholic men, 18 years of age and older, who are committed to making their community a better place, while supporting their Church and enhancing their own faith. Our council, 14217, was formed February 3, 2007. Our meetings are held on the second Thursday of the month at 7:00 PM.
Our Knights of Columbus, Council 14217, yearly donates proceeds from the Tootsie Roll Drive to the Bishop Grady Villas. Their mission is to provide residential, employment, youth transition, life skill development and advocacy services to individuals with intellectual and development disabilities through Central Florida. Unfortunately, this year, our council was not able to get the Tootsie Roll Drive into fruition, so the council voted and approved to donate $1,000.00 to this great organization.
