A Knights of Columbus council can work wonders; in fact, with its many programs, it can help change the community, town, city or neighborhood in which you live.

However, a successful Knights of Columbus program depends on people taking the initial idea, modifying it to suit specific situations and local needs, then implementing the program in the way it works.

The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic, family, fraternal, service organization. This theme permeates the entire Service Program: all Churchcommunitycouncilfamilyculture of life, and youth activities.

The Service Program is designed to establish each council as an influential and important force within the community, elevate the status of the programming personnel, provide more meaningful and relevant programs of action, establish direct areas of responsibility, build leadership, and ensure the success of council programs.

The Iowa State Council has a team of people ready to assist your council in its successful service program operation!
