Imagine being part of an organization that fills your heart and your mind with the joy of giving to others and the feeling that comes with making a difference. Knights are Catholic men, 18 years of age and older, who are committed to making their community a better place, while supporting their Church. Being a Knight is more than camaraderie: it is being involved with your community; it is supporting your local Catholic Church while enhancing your own Faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life. Come see just what we are all about, and take the first steps to enhance your personal faith life. Meetings are the first Monday of each month at 7:00 pm.
Membership: Men interested in becoming a member of the Knights of Columbus are invited to attend any meeting.

The Men’s League meets once a week during the summer months to play golf at Oakwood Golf Course, followed by fellowship time and prizes for closest to the pin, longest drive, etc. Golfers can play with fellow parishioners in a recreational but competitive format. The league’s main goals are sportsmanship, friendship, and the spirit of fair play. In 2003 the League started the tradition of donating $500 to St. Gregory’s School as a scholarship for a needy family. The gift is now made annually in memory of all deceased league members.

The St. Gregory Senior Citizens ministry provides its members with activities that help them enjoy a fuller life in our Church community. Its many activities and projects provide opportunities for spiritual growth, travel, and entertainment. The organization has grown to be one of the largest and most active ministries within our parish. Monthly meetings feature a short business meeting followed by a speaker on a topic of interest, or a form of entertainment. Refreshments and social time end the day’s activities. The ministry also hosts special parties, a Christmas luncheon, a summer picnic, and a bowling league. At the heart of our social activities, our Travel Club offers day trips, and occasionally longer excursions, to a variety of events and locations. Perhaps the best benefit of being a member of this ministry is the opportunity to meet new people, participate in diversified conversations, and broaden your social community.
