Knights of Columbus

The Knights of Columbus is a fraternal order of Catholic men that was founded in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney. He had two goals for the new group: Provide assistance to widow and children when a family breadwinner died, and Provide Catholic men with a fraternal association that would draw them closer to their Catholic faith and to one another.

We meet the third Thursday of the month at 6:30 PM in the Youth Center. For questions concerning our Organization contact Antonio Rodriguez at

Men's Fellowship Breakfast

The Holy Eucharist, also known as Holy Communion and Breaking of the Bread, is the third sacrament of initiation. Christ instituted the Holy Eucharist at the Last Supper. The essential rite of the Eucharist is the consecration of the unleavened bread and wine which is accomplished by the Priest. We believe Jesus is really present in the Eucharist and that the changing of the bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Christ is known as transubstantiation.

For more information on preparing for the Sacrament of Holy Communion, please call the Parish office at 661-327-4734.
