We are Catholic gentlemen committed to the exemplification of Charity, Unity, Fraternity, Patriotism and Defense of The Catholic Church. The order is consecrated to The Blessed Virgin Mary and is unequivocal in it’s loyalty to the Pope and is firmly committed to the protection of human life from conception to natural death and the preservation and the defense of the family. We are dedicated to helping Catholic Families spiritually grow in their faith and defend their beliefs. Through strong volunteerism of time and talent, members involve themselves in charitable programs to meet the needs of Christ The King Parish and the Mashpee, MA community.


Father Michael J. Mc Givney
founded the Knights of Columbus in 1882 at Saint Mary’s in New Haven, CT. as an organization committed to unity as a Catholic lay organization, Charity to those in need and Fraternity with fellow brother knights.


Today, knights and their families remain true to these principles and work to spread Columbianism around the world.


You and your family will benefit from membership in the Knights of Columbus. Join today and help make a better tomorrow.



The Knights Prayer

Our Lady Queen of the Knights, bless all the activities of our order. Keep us true to our pledge to extend the kinship of thy Divine Son on Earth. Through your intercession, win for us the grace ever to exemplify in our public and in our private lives the virtues which should characterize those specially dedicated to the service of the heavenly court. Make us always aware as your Knights we are constantly observed, our faith judged and our order appreciated. Accept O Mary this renewed pledge of Faith and devotion of thy servants, The Knights of Columbus, Amen.

HEREOS IN TRANSITION

On Nov. 25, 2010 the Knights of Columbus of Christ The King Parish, Mashpee presented a talk by Ken and Cynthia Jones, parents of Capt. Eric A. Jones, USMC  killed in Afghanistan a little over a year ago. Cynthia gave a very enlightening talk on how Eric was raised, and his passion for flying, and his desire to help his fellow man. Next, Ken told of how they coped with the loss of their son, by starting an organization that continued Eric’s wish to help others in need.

Mr. John Moon, Chief Communications Officer of the Neads Foundation, was introduced by Ken. Neads is a nonprofit organization that trains and provides dogs to people who are deaf or physically disabled. These assistance dogs become an extension of their owners and bring security, freedom, independence and relief from social isolation to their human partners. He introduced the audience to “Rainbow”, a five year old dog that has already helped some veterans, and now is helping the public see just how well trained the dogs are.

Ken also thanked the Knights of Columbus for all their help in their work with Heroes in Transition, and their generous donations for its cause. Bill Kelley and Jay Ambrose presented the Jones’ with a check from the K. of C. to continue the work of the Heroes in Transition Organization.

The event ended with Ken and Cynthia Jones making a very substantial donation to the Neads Organization.

Refreshments were served after the talk.
