Why We are Knights ...
Imagine being part of an organization that fills your heart and your mind with the joy of giving to others and the feeling that comes with making a difference.
Knights are Catholic men, 18 years of age and older, who are committed to making their community a better place, while supporting their Church. Being a Knight is more than camaraderie; it is being involved with your community; it is supporting your local Catholic Church, while enhancing your own faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life. Take a look below at what some of the Our Lady of Peace Knights say about why they joined the Knights ...
THE MAN THAT IS MOVED TO ACTION IS MOVED BY GOD
Becoming a Knight is easy. See one of our knights in the church or call Dave at 732-672-3811.
Why I joined the Our Lady of Peace Knights of Columbus ....
“THE OLOP KNIGHTS IS THE BEST ORGANIZATION I HAVE EVER BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH. OUR MEMBERS UNSELFISHLY SERVE THE PARISH COMMUNITY IN COUNTLESS WAYS AND NO MATTER HOW SMALL OR LARGE EVERY MEMBERS PARTICIPATION IS GREATLY APPRECIATED. OUR MEMBERS ARE A DIVERSE GROUP COMING FROM ALL WALKS OF LIFE AND I AM PROUD TO CALL THEM ALL MY FRIENDS.” DAVE
“BEING PART OF THE OLOP KNIGHTS IS AN HONOR AND A PRIVILEGE. THE OLOP KNIGHTS SERVE THE NEEDS OF GODS PEOPLE WITHOUT LOOKING FOR ANYTHING IN RETURN. THE KNIGHTS IS ALSO A STRONG BROTHERHOOD IN SPIRITUALITY AND PRAYER. IT IS TRULY A BLESSING TO BE AROUND SUCH A GREAT GROUP OF GUYS.” VICTOR
“I JOINED THE OLOP KNIGHTS BECAUSE I WANTED TO BE PART OF SOMETHING BIGGER THAN MYSELF. I WANTED TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN MY COMMUNITY. I WANTED TO BE A ROLE MODEL, A LEADER. THE KNIGHTS HAS GIVEN ME ALL OF THAT AND MORE WHILE ALSO ENHANCING MY RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD. I HAVE BEEN A KNIGHT FOR 2 YEARS AND LOVE EVERY MINUTE OF IT.” DREW
“I JOINED THE OLOP KNIGHTS BECAUSE I FELT IT WAS TIME TO GIVE BACK TO OTHERS LESS FORTUNATE. THE KNIGHTS IS A GROUP OF MEN THAT SHARE MY MORALS AND FAMILY VALUES. BEING WITH THE OLOP KNIGHTS IS ALSO A LOT OF FUN” JOE
“WHEN WE MOVED TO NORTH BRUNSWICK I BARELY KNEW ANYONE. I ASKED FATHER JOHN AND HE SUGGESTED THE KNIGHTS. I HAD MISGIVINGS ABOUT JOINING THE KNIGHTS. NOW I LOOK FORWARD TO ALL THE FUNCTIONS. I APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT THE LEVEL OF PARTICIPATION IS COMPLETELY UP TO EACH MEMBER AND NO ONE IS JUDGED BY HOW MUCH THEY DO OR NOT DO IN THE COUNCIL. THE SPIRIT OF BROTHERHOOD AND HELPING OUT IS WHAT I LIKE MOST ABOUT THE KNIGHTS.” RICO
“JOINING THE OLOP KNIGHTS WAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE MY CHURCH AND BOND WITH MY DAD. ALONG WITH MY DAD AND HIS FRIENDS I WAS HONORED TO BE ONE OF THE CHARTER MEMBERS OF THE COUNCIL. THE BEST PART ABOUT THE KNIGHTS IS THE SERVICE WE PROVIDE TO OUR CHURCH AND FATHER JOHN.” RICH
"IN TODAY'S WORLD, WE ARE BOMBARDED WITH IMAGES OF WHAT LIFE IS LIKE - CELEBRITIES, REALITY SHOWS, THE INTERNET TO NAME JUST A FEW. I AM CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT THESE EXAMPLES ARE TEACHING MY CHILDREN. KNOWING THE KNIGHTS FROM MY DAD, I JOINED THE OUR LADY OF PEACE KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS TO GIVE MY CHILDREN A LIVING EXAMPLE OF WHAT I BELIEVE MAKES A FATHER, HUSBAND AND MAN. GIVING BACK TO OUR COMMUNITY IN A DIRECT WAY - THROUGH VOLUNTEERING MY TIME AND SKILLS WITH NOT JUST OTHERS - BUT CATHOLIC GENTLEMEN... THE OLOP KNIGHTS.." STEVE R.
