Program Calendar 2018-2019

Columbian award 2017

The members of St. Mark’s Council work hard to promote the Knights of Columbus principles of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism.  Each year, the council plans activities and creates an annual program based on these principles.

The Columbian Award is awarded annually by Supreme Office, and recognizes the work of councils around the world in church, community, council, culture of life, family and youth activities.  In 2018, St. Mark’s Council achieved this honour for the fourth consecutive year.

You will find below the planned activities of St. Mark’s Council for 2018-2019.  This calendar will be updated as the program evolves over the course of the year.

Congratulations to each member of St. Mark’s Council for their ongoing dedication to the Knights of Columbus programs and activities.

Fraternally,

Doug Behl
Program Director
2018-2019
