Welcome
Knights of Columbus Patuxent Council No. 2203 supports the Catholic Church and the Laurel, MD. community.

With charity, we save lives, and we change lives! Ask us how, today!


Our Council continues to be quite busy with our service to the church and to the community. We’ve completed our November SHARE donation drive and the monthly food distribution, which included turkeys, etc. for Thanksgiving. We have our second round of holiday SHARE collections coming up the first two weekends in December – please volunteer to help with these collections at the Mass of your choice (i.e., before/after Mass). See the link to our sign-up genius in my weekly e-mails. Our December distribution will be on 21 December. We recently collected dozens of Boxes of Joy and shipped them off to Cross Catholic, have just completed our Keep Christ in Christmas poster contest, and have engaged our St. Mary’s School students & faculty in our Christmas Cards for Troops effort. Our Coats for Kids drive is in full swing. Our annual Consecration to the Holy Family will occur on the weekend between Christmas & New Year’s Day – 28/29 December – during all Masses. Our Family of the Month selection for October was the Hans & Marie Raven family. Please plan on attending our Council Christmas Party in the Keesler Center lounge at 6:30 pm, Saturday 7 December. As we did it last year, it will be a potluck dinner, and will include a voluntary gift exchange game. See my weekly e-mails for details. I hope you & your families had a blessed & safe Thanksgiving and I wish for you all a joyous & peaceful Christmas! VJ/Steve
