The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic men's family, fraternal, and service organization, founded to help members remain steadfast in their faith, to promote closer ties of fraternity among members, and to provide for the widows and children of deceased members. Over the last century it has become an organization of over 1.8 million members in the United States and several other countries.
The Knights at Nativity belong to the Father Vincent Sikora Council, No. 7992, established in 1982. The Council has over 400 members and is very active, we sponsor activities for:
Church (Coffee Social Ministry, March for Life, Ushers, Nativity School Tuition grants)
Community (Special Olympics, KOVAR, Food for Others, Red Cross Blood Drives, assistance to Burke Lake Gardens)
Youth (Boy Scouts, Youth Work Camp, Soccer & Basketball Challenge)
And other numerous parish & community support activities.
The Council meetings are held in the Parish Hall at the Church of the Nativity, 6400 Nativity Lane, Burke, VA 22015 on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the Month. We start our meeting the Rosary at 7:15pm followed by the Business Meeting at 7:30pm.
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 Role with you.
