Chuck Geisler, Representative to Pastoral Council
The Knights of Columbus is a worldwide Catholic Service Organization open to all Catholic men over 18 years of age and who are in communion with the Church. Calvert Council #7870 is the local representative of this organization. The Knights serve the Church, the community and the less fortunate.
Members of Calvert Council support St. Anthony’s in the various ministries of the parish. We sponsor the monthly Sunday Break- fast, co-host the annual Volunteer Dinner and support other parish events as well as respond to needs requested by the Pastor or parish. The Knights are active in many Liturgical Events, Devotions and Processions conducted at St. Anthony’s throughout the year.
We sponsor an annual Soccer Shoot Out for boys and girls (ages 6-18) and an annual Basketball Free Throw for boys and girls (ages 10 to 15). Calvert Council has sponsored a “Keep Christ in Christmas” Poster Contest and also recognizes the Altar Servers through awards and sponsorship to a Bay Sox baseball game.
Calvert Council actively supports the mentally and physically challenged of the community by hosting activities at Calvert Country School in Prince Frederick. The Council conducts the “Tootsie Roll” Campaign, which donates funds to this work in the local community. The Council also sponsors many dinner / dances open to the family and community.
