Assumption B.V.M.

The Knights of Columbus is a fraternal benefit society with over 1.8 million members in 14,000 councils throughout the United States, Canada, the Philippines, Mexico, Poland, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Panama, the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, Cuba, Guatemala, Guam and Saipan. Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven Connecticut, founded the Order in 1882 and the Order is still true to its founding principles of charity, unity, and fraternity.


The Regina Mundi Council #4052 was chartered in 1955 and has been serving Assumption BVM Parish and the community since its founding. There are almost 100 members. Some serve the parish in various roles including Pastor, Deacon, Sacristans, Ushers, Lectors, and Extraordinary Ministers. The Knights of Columbus supports the Catholic Church’s culture of life.


Some of our Council activities include:

  • Assist with work around the church as needed.
  • PennDOT Adopt a Highway - Cleaning up 1.9 miles of trash on Bristol Road from Old Lincoln Highway to Bridgetown Pike.
  • Food 4 Troops - Collect much needed non-perishable food items and toiletries for our troops serving in the armed forces.
  • St. Patrick’s Day Party and annual Pancake Breakfast – Our main fund raisers are used to donate money to needy parish families, charitable organizations and purchase needed equipment for various charitable organizations.
  • Donate money to offset the bus cost for parishioners’ taking part in the trip for the March For Life held in January in Washington, DC.
  • Contributed to many church renovations and parish improvements in the past and will continue to support these causes.


Membership in the Knights of Columbus is open to men 18 years of age or older who are practical (that is, practicing) Catholics in union with the Holy See. Meetings are only open to members in good standing and are held on the first Thursday of the month in the Knights’ Hall located by the sports fields across from the Gym. There are also brochures in the parish information center in the vestibule of the church. You can also visit the main Knights of Columbus website at:
