Objectives of the Ladies of Columbus
To promote Christian action and Patriotism. To cultivate a greater love for our Blessed Mother. To assist the Knights of Columbus with their activities creating a bond of comradeship and shared charity. To give spiritual aid and assistance to members and the world community in illness and bereavement. We engage in charitable actions that benefit deserving charities as well as Our Lady of the Assumption Parish.
We serve with faith, fellowship and fun!
Besides our three main fundraisers, we serve the community of Our Lady of the Assumption in many ways: Rosaries, family Masses and breakfasts, dinners before meetings, donut sales, donations to the parish school, monetary support of our priests and seminarians. We have fun too with picnics, Christmas parties and all around good time of faith, fun, and action.Council Meetings
