Knights of Columbus Cathedral Council receives top award

First slide

Knights of Columbus Cathedral Council 6790, at the Cathedral of St. Thomas More in Arlington, has been named a Star Council, the international organization’s top honor for local councils.

The award recognizes overall excellence in the areas of membership growth, promoting Knights of Columbus insurance benefits, sponsoring Catholic faith formation programs and volunteering time through service-oriented activities.

The Knights of the Cathedral Council provide support to almost every event in the parish, as well as many diocesan events. In the past three years, under the leadership of Grand Knight Ed Coleman, the council has raised more than $25,000 to support parish projects.

The council also offers opportunities for families to participate in events such as an annual Christmas party and monthly pancake breakfasts at the parish, and gives youths the chance to grow in their faith and leadership by supporting the diocesan Work Camp and retreats, and providing scholarships for education, said incoming Grand Knight Jackson Marsteller.
