Brothers, There is a lot going on with our Council, our Assembly, our Church, and our Community....


Knights of Columbus

The Knights of Columbus was started in 1882 at St. Mary’s Church in New Haven, Connecticut by Father Michael J. McGivney, whose cause for Canonization is currently being considered by the Vatican.

From its humble beginnings, our fraternal Order has grown into the largest Catholic lay organization in the world, dedicated to the principles of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism.

It is our goal to offer membership to every eligible Catholic man. Membership in the Knights of Columbus is open to men 18 years of age or older who are practical (that is, practicing) Catholics in union with the Holy See.

This means that an applicant or member accepts the teaching authority of the Catholic Church on matters of faith and morals, aspires to live in accord with the precepts of the Catholic Church, and is in good standing in the Catholic Church.

The 16,000-plus local Knights of Columbus councils are where our good works are carried out every day. Our 1.9 million members and their families, through their involvement in their local councils, are working for the betterment of their parishes and communities.

The St. John Council #3738 has been serving much of the South East DuPage area since 1953. If you are interested in learning more about the Knights and/or seeking to join this great Catholic Organization - You can visit our website at “KofC3738.org” for more information, or you may contact our membership director, Brad Alexander, at (630)205-0077 or via email at Balexander@sanchezdh.com.

We hope that you and your family will consider joining us!

Honor Guard Request

Bishop Conlon will beat Mayslake Village on Wednesday, October 21, to celebrate Mass at 10:30 AM and bless the newly remodeled Center Building.

They have requested an Honor Guard for the Mass (through myself and Fr. David). There will be a small luncheon after the Mass and blessing mainly for staff and dignitaries.

The Knights who are in the Honor Guard are invited to the luncheon. They would like to know the number so they are able to prepare the proper number of meals. Is this possible? Could we get word out to our Sir Knights of Council 3738 and get a commitment from them to attend the luncheon? Attendance at the luncheon is not mandatory, but Fr. David worked hard to get us invited. The Chapel at Mayslake is not large, so we do not need a real big Honor Guard. Please let me know what you think and if you have any questions, please feel free to call me. Also, please keep Fr. David in your prayers. He had his second injection today to help ease his back pain. He will still need surgery, but the doctor wants to try the three injections first. Please let me know if you can help.


Call to assist with an Honor Guard for Fr. Jim Schwab's installation as pastor of St. Mary of Gostyn' s parish. It will be held on Saturday October 3rd at the 5:15 mass. Bishop Conlon will be officiating. Refreshments will be served after the service. Please HELP if you can.

Who are the Knights?
The Knights of Columbus is the world's largest Catholic family fraternal service organization with 1.8 million members in 14,000 councils. It provides members and their families with volunteer opportunities in service to the Catholic Church, their communities, families and young people. The Knights was formed to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works.
The history of the Order shows how the foresight of Father Michael J. McGivney, whose cause for sainthood is being investigated by the Vatican, brought about what has become the world's foremost Catholic fraternal benefit society. The Order has helped families obtain economic security and stability through its life insurance, annuity and long-term care programs, and has contributed time and energy worldwide to service in communities.
