WHO ARE THE ZACHARY KNIGHTS?
In addition to online membership, Catholic men may optionally join a local KC Council. The Bishop Robert E. Tracy Council #10080 is the local KC Council here in Zachary chartered at St. John the Baptist. The council is named after the founding bishop of the Diocese of Baton Rouge. Council #10080 is made up of a core group of approximately 30 men working to put their faith into action in our parish, Church, and community. As Zachary and our church parish grows, the need for service grows as well! Consider joining KC Council #10080 in Zachary to answer the call for service and “be sent” as a witness to Christ here in Zachary.
WHAT DO THE ZACHARY KNIGHTS DO?
Council members in the local Zachary council focus on activities to support faith, family, community & life in our area:
Faith – The men’s faith formation program, That Man is You!, is led & organized by KCs. We volunteer regularly with St. John’s Office of Religious Education as support staff & Catechists. The Sunday morning Road to Emmaus program and our parish RCIA program are led by a Knight!
Family – Fundraisers benefit family financial support for youth faith-based camps like Camp Abbey. KC Council 10080 sponsors the annual Keep Christ in Christmas poster contest and organizes the Consecration to the Holy Family.
Community – Zachary Knights have led clean-up and construction efforts for hurricane relief, parish campus improvements, and supporting the Metanoia House. The council has donated funds to the Zachary Food Pantry and members often volunteer to support feeding Zachary citizens. KCs in Zachary sponsor both an essay contest & a scholarship program for Catholic high schoolers. In the past, we have financially supported the Bronco Buddies Prom for special needs high schoolers.
Life – Fundraising activity supports local teen attendance to the March for Life in Washington, D.C. We organize prayer vigils near Baton Rouge-area abortion clinics. Zachary KCs donate funds for life-saving ultrasound equipment & other needs at the Woman’s Life Center & Pregnancy Problem Center in Baton Rouge.
HOW DO I JOIN THE ZACHARY KNIGHTS?
After completing your online membership, you can request online to join a local council. You can be matched to KC Council 10080 in Zachary. Then an existing member from the council will contact you to schedule attendance at a new member event hosted in the Parish Activity Center where spouses, children, & other guests are welcome to attend. If you have questions about local council membership, contact Jeff Richards at 225-936-3362.
If you or your Catholic husband are seeking for a way to plug-in to the faith community here at St. John the Baptist, please consider supporting the local Knights of Columbus and register for membership online!
