Wisdom Club

Founded to bring together “Young at Heart” senior parishioners (50 years of age and older) and to give them the opportunity to express themselves socially and spiritually. The Club serves the parish and assists the pastor in a variety of ways, as needed. The group meets at 12 noon on the 4th Thursday of each month, beginning with Mass in the church. A brown-bag lunch and business meeting follow in The Portico of St. John. Guest speakers and activities are scheduled, covering varied subjects, all of which are of interest and concern to our age group. We also enjoy one-day trips, picnics, and “pot-luck” luncheons.

Knights of Columbus

Council #1393 was organized in 1909, bringing together Catholic men, 18 years and older, to promote and support Church, fraternal and civic activities. Meetings are held on the first and third Tuesdays of each month at The Portico of St. John Church. Potential member’s credentials are reviewed by a special committee that then recommends him to the entire Council as a worthy candidate. Our pastor serves as our spiritual advisor and Chaplain. Members pass through three steps or degrees in the process to full knighthood. A fourth degree of knighthood is optional.  Visit the Knights of Columbus website at http://www.kc1393.org/.
