Welcome to the Iowa Knights of Columbus

Welcome to the homepage for the Iowa Knights of Columbus! I hope our site allows you to better understand how, as Knights in the state of Iowa, we put our Faith In Action. Pope Francis has called all people of good will to, "go out to others, seek those who have fallen away, stand at the crossroads, and welcome the outcast." (Evangelii Gaudium, 24). 

 

Come explore out site and all of the great programs that our Knights are doing in the name of charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism. And maybe- you'll be inclined to join our efforts, whether to donate to a program, strike up a partnership, or by joining as a member. We'll love to have you!

July Regional Town Hall/District Gatherings 

 

Instead of separate district meetings to kick off the 2022 - 2023 fraternal year the State Council is holding regional District Meetings.

 

All weeknight’s start times are 6 pm with light food by the host Council, ending by 8pm. Host council will be reimbursed the difference if donations do not cover expenses. $100 will be available to every council that brings 5 or more to the meeting. Councils that bring 6 or more will be entered into a drawing for a door prize. Training for council officers will be offered also. 

If you are unable to attend the regional meeting for your district, please try to attend another which is near you.
