Knights of Columbus

The Knights of Columbus is the largest Catholic fraternal organization in the world. We have 170 members in Smyrna and are led by officers who are elected every two years.  The main purpose of our order is the widows and orphans of our deceased brothers.  We also support several seminarians and donated regularly to Right to Life and Pregnancy Support Center.   We are not a secret  organization but do restrict our meetings and exemplification ceremonies to members only.   The entire family and community are welcome to all other Knight events.  In addition, St. Luke council offers several activities for the whole parish throughout the year such as the School’s Out Summer picnic, Altar Server Fun Night, Halloween Weiner Roast and Hayride, Children’s Christmas Party and Adult Christmas Party.  We also sponsor several Lenten meal nights and spaghetti supper fund raisers.  If you are interested in knowing more about our organization or wish to transfer your membership to our council, please call the person listed on the Knights newsletter found in the Narthex by the glass wall. 2012-2013 Officers:Grand Knight-Charles Logsdon, Deputy Grand Knight-Allen Potts, Chancellor-Peter Verhoevan, Recorder-Patrick Fitzgerald, Financial Secretary-Bill Elliott, Treasurer-Frank Speer, Lecturer-Leonard Persinger, Advocate-Tom Crafton, Trustee One Year-Leonard Persinger, Trustee Two Year-Barry Nichols, Trustee Three Year-Barrett Jones, Warden-Ralph Fuller, Inside Guard-Ray Hafner, Outside Guard-Daniel Douglass, Chaplain-Father Jacob Dio
