Grand Knights Message

 

From the Grand Knight:

It is with great pleasure and pride that I welcome you to view the website of Bordentown Council #570 of the Knights of Columbus.  Please look around the site and learn more about our council. The members and I are extremely proud of our accomplishments, and are pleased to inform everyone what we are all about.

Our council is an extremely active group of Catholic gentlemen (and their families) operating in the Bordentown New Jersey, and boasts being 150+ members strong.  The council regularly hosts numerous events through the year, or on an annual basis.  These events are in support of our parish, our community, our families, the youth, or various charitable organizations.  Some examples include a monthly parish breakfasts, dinners, support to our mental disabled citizens, and the hosting of special events and well as scholarships to our youth.

Here are but a few of the programs we sponsor:

As the Grand Knight for the Council, I do understand that in today’s times especially, most people have minimal spare time to become involved with service organizations and do charitable works.  But life is short, and before you know it, you may have missed the opportunity to make positive contributions to our society.  It is through “strength in numbers” that the Knights of Columbus is able to make these positive contributions.  And I’m proud to say that Council 570 is a leader in this capacity, due to the dedication of its executive, the membership, and their families.

If you are a Catholic gentleman, and are interested in learning more about our order and/or Council 570 specifically, please take advantage of the website’s CONTACT US feature, and someone will be glad to answer your questions.

 

Vivat Jesus,

Robert Sherrier
