Iowa Knights of Columbus Programs

2014 Service Program Awards

The Iowa Knights of Columbus State Convention will take place in Des Moines, IA from May 2 - 4.  Hundreds of Knights from all over Iowa will gather to share the fraternity and unity that bonds our organization and will share on their charitable and patriotic works and programs.

One of the highlights of the 2014 State Convention will be the presentation of Service and Program Awards recognizing those councils and individuals that have gone beyond the call of duty to serve their neighbor, to be a pillar to their church, to defend the freedoms endowed by our Creator, to be what we are called as baptized Catholics: builders of His Kingdom on earth.

Any council member can make a nomination as long as they are approved by the Grand Knight.

The deadline for submitting nominations is March 15th 

Please submit ALL your nominations to

Antonio Bañuelos, State Program Director

1715 Pease Dr

Pleasant Hill, IA 50327-0928
