The San Marco Knights of Columbus celebrate 50 years

Knights of Columbus San Marco Council # 6344 is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. On Thursday, January 13, 1972, 30 knights formed the San Marco Council. Alexander Ayyot was the founding knight. The council was formed to provide service to the church and the community, to support charities at the local, state, and national levels, and to help knights improve their Catholic identity.

Our council supported the Church of San Marco by working as speakers, officers, and Eucharistic pastors from the beginning of the council.

Council Knights benefit charities such as the Catholic Faith Appeal, St. Vincent DePaul Society, Our Daily Bread Food Pantry, Police Foundation, Fire & Rescue Foundation and many other charities. Shortly after the council was formed, fundraising events such as the golf tournament began 48 years ago, and spaghetti dinners and bingo nights began 40 years ago. The council also holds Fish Fry dinners, an annual Tootsie Roll Drive for organizations specifically helping the intellectually challenged and of recent origins, the car shows and concerts that began three years ago. We donate thousands of dollars to charities and provide tens of thousands of hours of service to the Church and the community each year. Knights donate many hours of service to local organizations that help those in need, such as Habitat for Humanity.
