Can you tell me about your activities and charities?

Each local Council evaluates the needs of their community and implements those programs and activities that are most needed in their area.  Our programs focus on Church, Family, Community, and Youth.

At St Elizabeth Parish, our Council hosts a large number of projects over the course of the year.  Our charity work includes holding Blood Drives, collecting clothing and household items for the needy, supporting our Veterans with household items and social activities, and providing Christmas and Thanksgiving meals to those who struggle during the holiday season.

Our annual Basketball Free Throw Contest and our annual Lenten Fish Dinner are parish community favorites.  You will see us actively supporting religious education in our Parish School, as well as local groups like The Lord’s Pantry, Birthright of Coatesville, St Vincent de Paul Society, and St Mary of Providence Center.

Our Council supports many Right to Life activities, including March for Life in Washington DC; quarterly parish Pro-Life Adoration with the Respect Life Committee; 40 Days For Life Campaign; and monthly Mass and Rosary procession with St Agnes Respect Life Committee in West Chester.

Can you tell me about your insurance program?

Insurance participation is voluntary, but the Knights of Columbus insurance has been “Making a Difference for Life” for more than 120 years. Since our founding in 1882, our primary mission has been to protect families against the financial ruin caused by the death of the breadwinner. Today we do this, and help families secure their financial futures, through our top-rated portfolio of life insurance, long term care insurance and annuity products.  For more information, Click Here.  Or, you can contact:
