Clubs and Opportunities


Squire Logo

The Columbian Squires, the official youth organization of the Knights of Columbus, is a leadership development program for young Catholic men, 10-18 years old. There are over 25,000 Catholic young men in over 1,500 local units, called circles, throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, the Bahamas and Guam.

1. The Squires is designed to develop young men as leaders who understand their Catholic religion, who have a strong commitment to the Church and who are ready, willing, and capable of patterning their lives after the Youth of Christ.

2. A Squires circle must be sponsored by a council or assembly, but is run by and for young men, under the guidance of several Knights, who serve as counselors. Squires are to be leaders, thus, to the degree they are able, they are given the opportunity to lead, by running their own meetings, investing their own members, setting their circle's agenda and implementing their program of activities.

3. Squires have fun. They meet new friends; they travel, play sports and socialize. Squires are serious-minded, too. Squires are involved in promoting vocations, marching in defense of unborn life, feeding the hungry, clothing the poor, supporting Special Olympics and promoting Catholic education, among countless other activities. Thus, the Squires circle is an athletic team, a youth group, a social club, a cultural and civic improvement association, a management training course, a civil rights organization and a spiritual development program all rolled into one.

This group will have one organizational meeting per month and will gather together to lead and complete the service projects of their choice.

They may organize food drives for St. Charles Food Pantry, visit Cor Unum or My Dwelling Place to serve food, participate in coats for kids, and many other exciting projects.

To serve on the altar of the Lord is a priviledge and honor. This year will begin our Altar Server Guild which is designed to help those who are called to serve at the altar to learn more about the Mass and the Sacraments. This is done by a program of advancement that allows servers to advance to new levels through knowledge and service.
The Altar Server Guild is also a way for the parish to support our young altar servers by forming a community that will have its own outings and adventures. In this way the servers can build friendships that will support their common faith. Serving on the Altar is an easy and fun way to get more understanding and meaning out of the Sunday Mass.

If you are interested and would like more information about joining the Altar Server Guild, please fill out the form below.
