Knights of Columbus was founded on November 2, 1958. Our council serves
the Parish of Our Lady Queen of Peace in Bethalto, IL, which is a
member of the Springfield diocese, our fellow Brothers in Christ, and
our Nation. The chapter has over 300 members and is active in serving
the Bethalto community. Recent council activities include the annual
Tootsie-Roll drive to help disabled children and adults, Special
Olympics held at the SIU Edwardsville track, the basketball and soccer

The Bethalto Knights of Columbus Council recently sold its hall, so it now 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.
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 recently 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 Message from the Grand Knight
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 starting his new adventure 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!!Chris DeClue GK
