Activities are approved and launched at membership meetings held every 3rd Tuesday at 7:30 pm. Examples include community and parish service projects, charity poker, religious appreciation dinners, youth basketball free throw and spelling bee competitions, fraternal picnic, Christmas with Santa. New ideas are always sought from members.
We participate in the Knights of Columbus "Tootsie Roll"/Mentally Impaired (“M.I.”) Drive on the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of Palm Sunday weekends. Families and friends helped Bishop Gallagher Knights in Royal Oak raise funds that directly benefit children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities within our community.
The world needs Catholic men to step up and live out their faith. The Knights of Columbus helps men answer that call to do more, be more, involving their families in action.
We support many charities helping the community, such as, Mother and Unborn Baby Care in Southfield (http://www.maubc.org/), Holy Cross Children’s Services (http://www.hccsnet.org/); the ARC of Oakland County (http://thearcoakland.org/); the 40+ charities under the umbrella of Michigan Charities; Respect Life initiatives; local food banks, including the Franciscan Poverty Program and Gleaners; Sacred Heart Major Seminary; and programs recommended by the State Council of Michigan Knights of Columbus that in turn support the citizens of Michigan (http://mikofc.org/).
Bishop Gallagher Council #2569 works closely with many Catholic churches and agencies but most closely with St. Mary Catholic Church in Royal Oak, providing funds for various projects and members being active participants.
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
