Mission

Our Mission & Vision

The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic men’s fraternal service organization whose mission is to witness to our principles of charity, unity and fraternity by performing spiritual and corporal works of mercy locally and throughout the world.

Our Work

Knights Council 2951 in action

These public events are the main fund-raising activities which allow the Knights to help those in the local Florissant community.  Through Council Unity, as displayed by member involvement, our Fraternal Organization can perform acts of Charity and put our Faith in Action.

Where You Can Get Involved

Below are the major events where you may help both by working at them and/or participating in them.

Valley of Flowers

The Valley of Flowers is the “First Festival of Spring” held on the first full weekend in May in Florissant.  The Duchesne Home Association Grounds is one of the two main venues for the Festival.

This is the main fundraising event for the Knights for the year.

Chicken/Fish Fries

During the year, this fund raiser is held on the second Friday of the month (not held in May due to Valley of Flowers).  During Lent it is only a Fish Fry on each Friday in Lent.

The event is held from 3:30 to 7:00 p.m.

Spring and Fall Meat Shoots

For 4 Sundays just prior to Easter in the Spring and 4 Sundays just prior to Thanksgiving in the Fall, men and women test their marksmanship skills shooting at targets with a shotgun.  This event is from noon to dusk with food and beverage available including our “‘World Famous Free Bean Soup.”

Your help either as a worker or a participant can make these “shoots” a big success.

Food Truck Knights

On the third Fridays in April, June, August and October the Knights invite several of the most popular “Food Trucks” in the area to the Duchense Home Association Grounds.  From 5:00 to 8 the community may enjoy great food, family / friends getting together and musical entertainment.

Tootsie Roll Drive

The Knights of Columbus Drive for Persons with Developmental Disabilities (commonly called “The Tootsie Roll Drive”) is held annually in October.   Our Council and Auxiliary Ladies will be in front of participating Florissant stores.  They all will be wearing bright yellow vests, passing out Tootsie Rolls and collecting donations to help children with special needs.

Proceeds from the Tootsie Roll Drive will benefit the Knights of Columbus Developmental Center at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital. The Knights Center provides comprehensive diagnosis, intervention family support and professional education services to over 2,500 children a year.
