Calling All Knights.
The projects the Council undertakes often requires the assistance and participation of the Knights of the council.
The easiest way to volunteer to serve your brothers and the parish is through Sign-Up Genius.
- Council Meeting: Next council meeting is Tuesday, June 6. Rosary
starts at 7:15pm.
- Wives Appreciation Dinner: June 11th.
- The Council will be hosting a food booth at the Fall Festival on September 30th. However,
we are in need of an ad hoc Committee chair to step up and lead the event for the Council.Tom Savage and Barry Basselgia are too involved in the event to actually take on the KC booth. Barry is Co-Chair of the entire event and Tom is Co-Chair over the food and Chair of Wine and Beer Garden. If you're willing to volunteer, please contact Worthy Grand Knight Mike Litzelman at

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 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.
