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.

2016 Free Throw Winners

2016 Indiana Knights of Columbus Free Throw Championship - State Finals

The Free Throw Championship is the largest Knights of Columbus Youth event in the State, and the contestants had to advance through the Council, District, and Regional competitions to make it to the State Championship. The contest was held on Sunday, March 6, 2016 at St. Theodore Guerin Catholic High School in Noblesville.

Attached is the list of results for the 2016 Knights of Columbus Free Throw Championship for the State of Indiana. I have also attached a couple of group photos. The first place winners all received a trophy, runners-up received a 2nd place plaque, and all contestants received a certificate of participation. The 1st and 2nd place winners are also listed at the very bottom of this e-mail.

Please contact your councils to let them know the results if you had a participant entered from your district. There were a few councils that didn't place the council number on the entry forms, so we had to do some work to find the participants council number. Please make sure to have your council number on all forms submitted next year, since the contestants usually don't know the council number.

Thank You to the chairmen of the Council, District, and Regional level contests and to everyone who volunteered, participated, organized, donated, or helped out a contest in any way throughout the state, for each of those contests.

Thank You to the Lt. Gen. Timothy Maude Assembly #2740 for the Great presentation of the colors at the State Finals.

THANK YOU to the Golden Voices Choir at St. Theodore Guerin for the EXCELLENT singing of the National Anthem. We heard many compliments from those in attendance.

A special THANK YOU to all the volunteers at the State Finals, in particular Chris Brelage, the State Finals Chairman, and Larry Kunkel, Host District Deputy #22. A THANK YOU to Thomas Beck for his work and passing on his Knowledge and Wisdom from the past contests to Chris, Larry, and myself, it helped to make the State Finals a success! The Knights received many compliments from the parents and family in attendance at the State Finals contest!

And THANK YOU to all the State Officers for their work and support at the contest!

The YOUTH are the Future of our Country, our Church and of OUR ORDER!

Start preparing them NOW by getting them involved in the Knights of Columbus activities!

Thank you again for all your hard work and dedication.

Ultrasound Initiative

Ultrasound Initiative

The Knights of Columbus have been involved in fighting for the unborn for decades, but until recently, their efforts were focused on projects with a long term goal of helping the American culture understand the importance of the right to life. Realizing that babies are in danger of abortion every day, the Knights launched a project to help pregnancy centers purchase ultrasound machines.
