Faith In Action 2021-2022  

Monthly Dinners for P.A.D.S.

'Public Action to Delver Shelter is an organization our Council helps. On the last Sunday of October through the last Sunday or April, owner member prepare a Dinner meal for those less fortunate. This is just a pert of our Community Service to insure no money goes hungry. Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners are to favorites.


Charity is at the heart of our work and our faith — and it always has been. For the Knights of Columbus, charity means supporting a virtually boundless variety of projects including helping each brother and the community.

Here are Knights and Families of Council 3880 distributing Food and Goods to our community from the Crystal Lake Food Pantry.


The unity of our Order is founded in the sacred unity of our Church, which arises from the unity of God, who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Our unity expresses our belief in one Lord, one Faith, one Baptism, and one God and Father of us all.

In October we display Pro-Life Crosses in honor of lives taken through Abortion.


Our bond of Fraternity is not merely a lofty principle. It is the way of life of a steadfast Knight of Columbus strengthened by the Holy Spirit. It is the responsibility of every Knights of Columbus council to be an exemplary model of Catholic fraternity.

Members of the Knights of Columbus, be they Americans, Canadians, Mexicans, Cubans, Filipinos, Poles, or Dominicans, are patriotic citizens. We are proud of our devotion to God and country, and believe in standing up for both. Whether it’s in public or private, the Knights remind the world that Catholics support their nations and are amongst the greatest citizens.

Fr. McCormick Council 3880 will continue the worthy tradition started by Brother John L Orso and led for many years by Brothers PGK John M. Orso and Steve Bright. There was some concern earlier after the hosting church and major sponsor were changed. Pioneer Center is the new Sponsor, and the church that we will be serving dinners at is the new Willow Crystal Lake. Linda from Bethany will still assist us in coordinating the serving for a while longer. Our only change, really, is that we do not need to have the food at Willow until between 6:30 and 6:45 PM. Everyone involved at this point thinks this will ease our burden. 

With this, WE NEED YOUR HELP! As the first dinner starts on Sunday, October 28th, we are playing catch-up! Here is the tentative schedule:
