The Knights of Columbus is a world-wide fraternal organization of Catholic men. Our council was named after our twinning parish in Lima, Peru; Nuestra Senora de la Luz, Our Lady of the Light. We meet the first Wednesday of each month in the Witzman Center. The rosary is recited at 6:30 PM, followed by the business section at 7:00 PM.


The principles of the Knights of Columbus are:

Charity: Our faith in God compels us to show our love, both spiritually and materially, for our family, neighbors and community by donating our time and resources to enhance the lives of those in need.

Unity: We stand united, as brothers, in support of the Church’s teachings on abortion, social issues and other moral concerns which afflict our society today.

Fraternity: The venerable Michael J. McGivney founded the Knights of Columbus, in large part, to provide assistance to the widows and children of the breadwinners who died. The Order’s top-rated insurance program continues today.

Patriotism: We are proud of our devotion to God and country and stand up for both. This aspect of Knighthood is the most publicly visible as members provide honor guards for our clergy and in support of our country.

Where is the time going?  It seems like we were just in the Advent season and now it is the most solemn time of Lent.  Let us use this solemn 40-day period of Lent to engage in prayer, fasting and almsgiving to deepen our connection to Jesus Christ who gave the ultimate sacrifice for all of us.  The Knights of Columbus begin our Council meetings with a rosary.  That brings me a wonderful sense of peace and comfort.  Our Programs of Faith, Family, Community and Life continue to be busy, and we can use the help of the men of our parish.  Please consider joining the Knights of Columbus.  The Knights of Columbus can provide you with a lifelong brotherhood and friendship that you will forever be thankful for.  Join us today by going to and click on Join at the top of the page.  For more information, contact me by phone or email and I would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.  On behalf of the Knights of Columbus, I would like to thank Archer’s Tavern in Kettering for their generosity.  Archer’s will donate to the Ascension Knights of Columbus 10% of the dining bill for any Ascension parish member.  All you have to do is tell them you are from Ascension each time you dine at their Kettering location.  This applies to the Kettering location only and runs every day of the year.

Vivat Jesus,

SK John E. McCormick, Grand Knight
