Join the Knights of Columbus at St. Therese Parish and Put Your Faith Into Action
Welcome, all adult Catholic men! Become a member of our Catholic Men's Service organization and strengthen your faith through action. We work together to support the Church, St. Therese Parish, and our local San Diego community through service and prayer. As members of the world-wide Knights of Columbus community, we also help with national and international initiatives that put our faith into action wherever it's needed.
In the New Testament Epistle of James chapter 2, it says that if we say we have faith but do not prove it by our good works, our faith is dead. The Knights of Columbus Council 7792, St. Therese Parish provides you the opportunity to bring your faith alive by doing good for others.
