Saint Mary of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church

The council is the right arm of St. Mary Church. We sponsor many church-related activities that benefit the families of the church and results in additional revenue for the Service activities that we support.

Keep Christ in Christmas.Without Christ there would be no Christmas. It is easy to forget this in the rush and commercialism that seemingly dominates the season. Many stores ban employees from saying “Merry Christmas” for fear of offending someone. This atmosphere is the perfect place for Knights to step forward. We sell Christmas Trees,

Basilica of the National Shrine

The Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington D.C. stands out as a symbol of Catholicism in America. The idea of a national shrine was first conceived in 1909. Eleven years later, the cornerstone was laid for the largest Catholic Church in North America and one of the ten largest churches in the world today.

In 1959, the Knights of Columbus donated $1 million for the construction of the Shrine's majestic 329 foot 56 bell "Knights Tower". In the 1980's, the Knights established a Knight staffed usher ministry as well as a $1 million memorial endowment to promote Marian devotion and to preserve and maintain the Shrine's structure and annual operation.

In 2006, the Knights donated $1 million for the 3,780 square foot mosaic Knights of Columbus Incarnation Dome in the Shrine's Great Upper Church. This donation continues the Knights historic relationship with the National Shrine as the preeminent pilgrimage site in the United States.
