The Father Sikora Council of the Knights of Columbus has depended often on the few to provide a greater service to the many. Stepping up to assume a level of responsibility for the operation of the Council is not a task to be taken lightly. At the same time, we have quite an honor role of those who have endeavored to serve selflessly. We'd like to share that Honor Roll with you.
