Kmights of St Columba St Albans KSC


Knights of St Columba, KSC
 
St Albans & District Council of the KSC includes the parishes of Harpenden, London Colney, Potters Bar, Radlett, Redbourn as well as those in St Albans  

What do you know about the Knights of St Columba (KSC)?
Did you know that we are a fraternal Catholic men’s organisation that has branches (Councils) throughout the UK and that our local Council is based in St Albans?  

Why do we exist?   What do we do?  
Our activities are largely caring, spiritual and social.  In these activities we support our local Priests and aim to involve our wives and families as much as possible.

Our caring activities
Include visiting and supporting not only our members and their families but also others whom we believe we can help.   But this is not all!   By involving ourselves in fund-raising ventures, we are able to help people financially.  For example during the last two years our monthly Bingo sessions have generated money for TOSE, a care home supporting severely disabled people in Zimbabwe, LIFE, a Claretian Mission in Belize, SVP, HCPT, and Catholic schools in Batam, an Indonesian island about ten miles from Singapore.   We also support national KSC projects such as Help the Hospices and Vision Aid Overseas and we provide stewards for various events throughout the year including for the visit of Pope Benedict XVI to the UK.


Our spiritual activities
Include opening and closing prayers at all meetings with prayers for special intentions as necessary and scripture readings   and   monthly    Adoration   of   the    Blessed Sacrament.   In addition, we have our annual afternoon of recollection held jointly with the Catholic Women’s League.   These afternoons are led by inspiring people who stimulate thoughts of who we are and our relationship with God and others. Other spiritual activities have taken us to Aylesford, Walsingham and even France.   Special Masses include occasional house Masses and, in particular, our annual Mass for our deceased members which by being followed by a lunch at a local restaurant enable us to combine the spiritual and social aspects of our existence.

Other social activities
Include our annual barbecue in the garden of one of our members.   These have always been very successful as they bring together not only our members but also their wives, families and friends.   Also we meet for lunches and evening meals at a variety of local restaurants.   Indeed we have a luncheon club that meets monthly with our Christmas lunch being especially popular.
