“It is an Order composed of Catholics and instituted for the welfare of Catholic families….Not only in sickness, but when death takes the support of the family away, the Knights of Columbus comes to the relief of the widow and the orphan in a very substantial manner.”
Venerable Rev. Michael J. McGivney, Founder

Knights of Columbus

In an economic environment that often promotes individualism and competition, the Knights of Columbus offers practicing Catholic men a counter-cultural experience: a fraternal brotherhood that is foundational for a secure life.

St. Mary's is blessed to have the presence of Knight’s of Columbus Holy Ghost Council 11184 in support of our parish life. Knights and their families are welcome collaborators in many local works of the parish, Archdiocese and surrounding community.

Men of the parish 18+ years of age who are interested in joining the Knights can contact Round Table Coodinator Philip G. Desmarais, 301-752-6286, philipgdesmarais@aol.com.

Prayer to Our Lady of Guadalupe

God of power and mercy, you blessed the Americas at Tepeyac with the presence of the Virgin Mary of Guadalupe. May her prayers help all men and women to accept each other as brothers and sisters. Through your justice present in our hearts may your peace reign in the world. We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God for ever and ever. Amen.
