Charity

Another name for charity is love and we seek to fulfill Christ’s commandment for us to love God and neighbor:  “‘you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength’.  The second is this, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself’. There is no other commandment greater than these” (Mark 12:30-31). We seek to care for those in need and demonstrate the love that Christ showed us. As dedicated Catholic men we love God through our worship and obeying his commandments and we love our fellow man by serving our community and local parish  in the spirit of charity and love. As Knights, Charity is our first and most basic principle because all else flows from love. Charity is the principle of first degree knights and a foundation for all other knighthood degrees.

Charity includes giving to others; our time as well as our resources. Here is a list of organizations the Folsom Knights of Columbus support:
