About Saint Damien of Molokai Council
Our council was founded in 1994 through the efforts of Tony Day, William Boyde, and Father Frank E. Lioi. It was named after Saint Damien of Molokai to pay tribute to Saint Damien and his brave efforts to look after Gods less fortunate people suffering from leprosy. Saint Damien was a quiet hero, a relentless guardian of the oppressed. Damien of Molokai, the leper priest, inspired his own times and still serves as a symbol of charity in the new age. Council 11411 can proudly be known as Saint Damien of Molokai Council as it seeks to show care and concern for those most in need.
A Varied Fraternal & Charitable Program
Our council hosts a large number of activities throughout the year including
  • soccer and basketball events for boys and girls 10-14,
  • a Wine and Food Gala,
  • pancake breakfasts.
  • a fresh fruit sale with fruit delivered before Thanksgiving
Other activities include:
  • Members of the council also take Monroe Community Hospital patients from their rooms down to Mass on the Sundays in August each year,
  • conducts clothing or food drives during the fall,
  • and volunteers for various other charitable causes.
  • A memorial Mass is held in November each year for all deceased Knights;
  • members also hold a prayer service at the funeral home of any deceased Knight.
  • The Knights also sponsor a public Rosary for Priestly Vocations at which guest priests and others give reflections on each of the five mysteries prayed.
  • One of the Lenten Stations of the Cross at Saint Anne Church each year is designated "Knights of Columbus Night" and serves as one way for Knights to come together to observe the holy season of Lent.
