What Our Members Are Saying
Don’t just take it from us, let our members do the talking!
“As a member of Council 1333, for almost 20 years I am proud to be part of an organization centered around Christ! Being in the company of hardworking, practicing Catholic gentleman, whom I respect and genuinely love, I have become my longtime friends over the years. Through the Knights and their many fine programs I have worked with our brothers to help those less fortunate, worked to clean up our beautiful Chester County roads, pancake breakfasts, free throw tournaments, supporting our St. Agnes School Scholarship initiatives, painting the convent, and Camilla Hall and participate in fund raising through fun annual activities such as golf outings, Christmas Tree sales, crab cake sales, etc. I have only named a few, there are many more activities to participate in. All this has helped me grow as an individual, as a father, and a spouse and participating in something bigger than myself, enjoying especially the camaraderie of special friends that have and will continue to be there for years to come.”
“After having been a Knight for almost a decade, I found myself not engaging like I wanted to. A couple years ago I started really getting involved in the council’s charitable efforts and it has been extremely rewarding. Our council offers many opportunities for service such as helping the parish through Christmas Tree Sales, breakfasts, Free Throw and Soccer Challenges. We also help out the local Sisters of the IHM at Camilla hall by volunteering at their Oktoberfest and also helping out with a painting program throughout the year. The council is very family oriented with lots of activities for the whole family. Our Council also offers college scholarships for members relatives through an essay application competition. Another thing the Council does well is support the local Pro Life charities through numerous fund raising efforts. The KofC Council 1333 brother knights have been nothing but welcoming and I can’t recommend our Council any higher. Vivat Jesus!”
“Thank you to all my Brother Knights for their unconditional service to the St. Agnes and the West Chester communities. A special thanks to all those that support the student scholarship program that benefits the members and their families of our very generous Council 1333. My son Luke is one of this year’s recipients of this scholarship program. As a family we are very grateful to have Luke receive this award and honored that the Council has recognized his efforts in service to the community. We will continue to support this great cause for the children of the present and future members of our council. Thank you!”
