Spiritual reflection



Knights In Action - Faith In Action

Founded in 1882 by a parish priest, Blessed Michael McGivney, to assist working-class and immigrant Catholics in the United States, the Knights of Columbus now consists of 17,000 councils throughout North America and the world – making it the world’s largest Catholic fraternal service organization. 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. As the strong right arm of the Church, Knights stand firm in their support of those being initiated into our faith – our future leaders.

Here are Faith In Action programs our council participates in.






Faith Based Giving



Refund Support Vocations Program (RSVP)

Keeping the faith alive, we support our seminarians and postulant. As the strong right arm of the church, Knights of Columbus are committed to providing moral, financial and spiritual support to our future priests and religious at all stages of their formation.

Knights of Columbus stand in solidarity with our priests and religious. Through this program, our council and parish families raise funds to support seminarians in our diocese. For every $500 given to an individual, the Supreme Council will refund the council or assembly $100. The maximum refund a council or assembly can receive is $400 per individual supported. Though financial support is vitally important, it is not the only aspect of the RSVP. Councils are also called to provide their “adopted” seminarian or religious aspirant with moral support and prayers for their success.

Rev. P.N. Lynch Council supports our Seminarians through this program annually. We have "adopted" five seminarians.

Holy Hour

Holy Hour

As knights, we create opportunities to pray together as a fraternity. We gather for special novenas and encourage deep personal encounters with Christ through Eucharistic adoration in the form of Holy Hours and Eucharistic Processions.

As Catholics, we believe in the Real Presence: that Jesus Christ is truly present – body, blood, soul, and divinity – in the Eucharist. As such, we are compelled to grow in our devotion to Jesus in the Eucharist and to share His presence with the world. Holy Hours feature the exposition and benediction of the Blessed Sacrament and can also include a reflection, communal rosary, prayers for intercession by Blessed Michael McGivney or St. Joseph, and other devotions. Eucharistic Processions provide an opportunity to walk with the Blessed Sacrament through the community, bringing Jesus to everyone along the route.

Build the Domestic Church

Building The Domestic Church Kiosk

By organizing activities in our parishes, we help educate and evangelize using the rich resources found in the Catholic Information Service (CIS) Building the Domestic Church series of booklets.

Since 1948, CIS has been the major evangelical arm of the Knights of Columbus. Through multiple booklet series and various media formats, CIS makes our Catholic faith accessible and continually provides tools for catechists and faith formation.

We can supply these in English, Spanish and French.

Rev. P.N. Lynch Council 704 purchesed kiosks for two parishes and maintain them today. One in English and the other in Spanish. We also distributed 700 Spanish daily prayer planners to area churches.

Pray the Rosary

Rosary Program

Building faithful families and communities through rosary prayer, the Knights of Columbus Rosary Program encourages councils to promote devotion to the rosary in our families and parishes by scheduling regular rosary prayer services.

This program encourages devotion to Mary, the patroness of our Order, and emphasizes the importance of prayer in community and as a family. The Rosary Program encourages councils to schedule regular rosary prayer services on any day of the week, at any time of the year, with the guidance of their pastor.

In 2020, blessed by Bishop Gugliemone, our council, Rev. P.N. Lynch 704, distributed 50,000 rosary rings to all the parishes in the state of South Carolina. We also gather to pray the rosary together several times a year.


Sacramental Gifts

We support families during the most important events in the life of the domestic church: the sacraments. We play a role in these momentous faith events and the lives of our families and parish community through prayer and the presentation of symbolic gifts welcoming them into the faith as new couples in marriage, and as new families in baptism.

The sacraments stand as the most significant events in the life of the domestic church. The Knights of Columbus will be there to support and embrace our parish families at these essential moments of encounter with Christ. As children and adult members become more integrated into the life of the church and their parish, they should know that members of the Knights of Columbus will always be present in a tangible and meaningful way.
