The Knights of Columbus have been busy Spreading Christmas Cheer!


Knights volunteered this morning to cook and flip over a thousand pancakes for the YMCA’s Pancakes with Santa. The Northwest YMCA has been a great sponsor of Knights Council 15996. We are thankful for the opportunity to provide a service to the families of Northwest Cobb County. What a great way to empathize the ‘C’ in YMCA! Turnout was higher than expected, but the Knights exceed expectations. Big thanks to the Knights that spent the morning spreading Christmas cheer!



After postponing due to snow, Knights Council 15996 celebrated their 4th Annual Family Christmas Party Thursday night. Families gathered with plenty of food and desserts to eat. Our Grand Knight and Deputy Grand Knight ended the night giving away gift cards and other door prizes.

Families donated toys for Saint Clare’s Giving Tree ministry, keeping our pillar of Charity true to heart.

A big thanks to everyone that made this great night possible, including a secret Saint Nick that donated some gift cards!



Knights’ Council 15996 held its monthly business meeting on Thursday at the Roberts School and Community Center, in downtown Acworth. At each meeting, Knights donate bags of food for our Saint Vincent de Paul’s food pantry and spare change for the Monastery of the Holy Spirit. Knights actively participate in planning for new events and activities that focus on Charity, Unity, and Fraternity. A family style meatball dinner was served for these men they call Knights.
