The Bethalto Knights of Columbus Council holds its meetings on the second and fourth Monday of every month at Our Lady Queen of Peace Church.  We say the rosary beginning at 6:45 PM and the meeting starts immediately afterwards. There we discuss our business and enjoy the company of our brother Knights. If you are interested in serving your fellow man and joining the Knights of Columbus, we invite you to speak with one of our Knights or send us a message using the form on the Contact Us page and we will be glad to answer your questions about the K of C.

We invite you to browse our site and see the many activities the K of C are involved in - one of which just might be something you would enjoy helping with or learning more about.

Having sold its meeting hall, the Bethalto K of C Council no longer provides rental facilities to the public.  Click here for a list of area K of C councils that do.

Important Messages from the Grand Knight - Chris DeClue

All too often our brave men and women might be overlooked and under appreciated. Our freedoms that we have are a tribute to the sacrifices that are always made by our military. Our very own Brother Knight Adam Miller is currently serving in the United States Army! The Knights are very supportive of our seminarians and our military. We pray that God will keep him safe and continue to bless him and his family along the way. God Bless!! 

The Power of Prayer - The thoughts and prayers of the entire parish were with the Rogers family as they dealt with the medical challenges faced by young Noah (shown with his grandparents, Dick and Barb Rogers).  The medical care he received yielded great results, and he is now doing much better.
