Who are the Knights?
The Knights of Columbus is the world's largest Catholic family fraternal service organization with 1.6 million members. It provides members and their families with volunteer opportunities in service to the Catholic Church, their communities, families and young people.

The membership of St. Louise-Overlake Council supports each other in many ways including supporting each other in faith, community, social activities and our daily needs. St. Louise-Overlake Council publishes a monthly news letter to keep all of our members and families up to date on the latest activities.

4th Degree EmblemAny Third Degree member in good standing, one year after the anniversary of his First Degree, is eligible for membership in the Fourth Degree. The primary purpose of the Fourth Degree is to foster the spirit of patriotism by promoting responsible citizenship and a love of and loyalty to the Knights' respective countries through active membership in local Fourth Degree groups (called "assemblies"). Certain members of the Fourth Degree serve as honor guards at civic and religious functions, an activity that has brought worldwide recognition to the Knights of Columbus.

Most of the Fourth Degree members of St. Louise-Overlake Council belong to the Rev. William J. Power Assembly [1630]. Assembly 1630 meets in the meeting hall of St. Louise-Overlake Council on the Third Wednesday of each month.

Ladies Auxiliary
St. Louise-Overlake Council does not have an official "Ladies Auxiliary" however many of the ladies are there to support the council in our work and actives. They do this primarily by providing help at events, cooking for events and providing monetary help. They also generally do help with setting up and beautifying the hall for events.
