Knights of Columbus Council #7014 – Rockdale

Regular meetings are held on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm for all members. Officer meetings are held on the 1st Thursday of each month at 6:15 pm. Meetings and upcoming events can be found in the K of C newsletter and calendar below:

K of C Council #7014 was established in 1978 with Ike Korenek serving as the first Grand Knight. Our local council exemplifies the mission of the Knights. Council #7014 has grown to be an iconic institution of the Rockdale community, and has provided a large space at the “KC Hall” for all types of gatherings, from charity events for law enforcement officers to cancer victims, to private events from wedding receptions to quinceañeras, to annual events like Christmas Round-up, and everything in-between. They not only provide event space, but they generously contribute to the community through their time and donations. They support our Catholic community in so many ways. The “KC’s” are the driving force behind the annual Mayfest which raises funds for both the Knights and St. Joseph parish. Please support them in their fund raising efforts. Some of these K of C fund raisers include charity bingo and Lenten Friday Fish Fry’s. They are phenomenal cooks!
