OUR COUNCILOur Council was formed December 1, 1992 and is associated with St. Ignatius of Antioch Parish, Yardley, PA.
Mission: Fr. McCafferty Council is dedicated to living out the principles of our order:
Charity: We work to aid the poor, sick, and elderly through various fundraisers and outreach programs.
Unity: We stand united as one voice with our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI in defense of life in all stages, against oppression of the downtrodden, and for the family.
Fraternity: We provide a support system for one another and our families. We grow together in friendship and faith as we work to live out our mission. Patriotism: We support our Armed Forces and our Veterans through several programs and are eternally grateful to those who have sacrificed for our freedom!
Programs: Our Council sponsors many events throughout the year. Our members are invited to an annual retreat. We have an annual Golf Outing which is our largest fundraiser. Our Pancake Breakfast is a crowd pleaser and a great chance for Knights, their friends, family and fellow parishioners to spend a fun time together. We organize many service projects that are opportunities for our members to roll up their sleeves and make a personal impact on their community. There are even events for the youth including a free throw contest in January.
Membership: To become a member, one must be a Catholic gentleman, in good standing, in communion with the Holy See and at least 18 years of age. Candidates must complete the Orders Exemplification of Charity, Unity, and Fraternity in order to become a member.
