Council 12085 in Oakhurst is one of 17,000 Knights of Columbus councils that make up the world’s largest Catholic fraternal service organization. Founded in 1882 to assist working-class and immigrant Catholics in the United States, today the approximately two million members of the Knights, put their faith into action through a broad range of charitable causes locally, nationally and internationally with financial contributions and hands-on service.
Our local youth have participated in the tournaments for over 20 years and have produced a number of State Champions and untold numbers of District and Chapter Champs. We are looking forward to meeting our local sharpshooters and their parents and friends on Feb. 1 and Feb. 8.
Thank You so much for your support in this.
