Knights are Catholic men, 18 years of age and older, who are committed to making their community a better place, while supporting their Church. The Knights of Columbus is an international Catholic lay organization with more than 1.8 million members in more than 13,000 councils located throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, Poland, and several other countries. On December 11, 2007 Our Lady Of The Lake Council 9309 was formed in Ebony, VA. Currently, we have members serving the parishes of St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church in Ebony, Virginia and St. Richard Catholic Church in Emporia VA.
The principals of our Order are: Charity: Our Catholic Faith teaches us to “Love thy neighbor as thyself”. Our Council donates to local food pantries, volunteer at Special Olympics and provide financial and physical support for several charitable organizations. Unity: None of us is as good as all of us. Together we can accomplish far more than any of us could individually. As a Knight you can count on the support and encouragement of your brother Knights as you work to make life better in your parish and community. Fraternity: The Knights of Columbus was founded, in large part to provide assistance to the widows and children left behind when the husband died. The Order’s top rated insurance program continues to do this today as do individual Knights who give more than 10 million hours of time to assist sick and/or disabled members and their families. We watch out for and take care of one another! The Knights of Columbus offers a portfolio of top-quality life insurance, long-term care, and annuity products exclusively for members and their families.
