The Saint Joseph Marello Council #16071 of the Knights of Columbus was instituted October 22, 2014.
Our Knights of Columbus council is a source of Spiritual development with FAMILY and the CHURCH in mind for all activities.
We hold our meetings on the second Wednesday of each month at 7:00 PM in the parish meeting room.
The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic, Family and Service organization built on the principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism. Our main purposes are to strengthen parish life, support the church and provide an organization where families can join together to share their beliefs and socialize.
One of the main goals of the Knights of Columbus is to have a council in every parish. We accomplished this as we continue to grow and serve St Joseph Marello parish and the community.
Our next council meeting will be Wednesday, September 13th at 7:00pm. Arrive early to participate in the Rosary.
The Knights of Columbus council held a fundraiser at the PNC Field in Moosic. The fundraiser benefited the Coats for Kids program we do to provide coats for the Kids Closet at St John the Evangelist. Through ticket sales and donatations, we raised close to $500 with this event. Thank you to all who supported and assisted with this project.

The need for winter coats in the area is more than most realize. Collection bins will be loacted in the church vestibule (near the 'angel doors') for your donation of new or gently used winter coats.
