Welcome to the website for the Knights of Columbus Council #11730. All feedback and suggestions welcomed. Please use the contact form or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re celebrating 25 years at Our Lady of the Pines promoting our principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity, Patriotism. Please see the recognition we received for achieving this milestone.
Letter from Colorado State Deputy:
Letter from Supreme Knight:
Below is the current list of officer nominations for the next fraternal year starting 1 July. Please note we’re still looking for nominations for some of the positions and additional nominations are also possible for all positions. Elections will be held at the 13 May meeting.
Joe Graff. Our Deputy Grand Knight produced and hosted four Into the Breach Retreats, during the months of November, January, February and March. These retreats, sponsored by the Knight’s of Columbus, offered men both spiritual and practical guidance to be leaders of faith in their families and communities.
We’re encouraging all to wear our distinctive OLP apparel when participating in parish activities. We only have a limited supply in our current inventory. Additionally, Joe Graff (NORTHWESTCONSULTING@MSN.COM), is collecting interest in those wanting jackets, polos, or long sleeve shirts. He’ll obtain quotes before finalizing purchases.
Knight of the Month: Deacon Bill Bollwerk: Deacon Bill has been a supporter of the Knights of Columbus for a long time. He has regularly attended our monthly council meetings as the chaplain’s representative. He keeps us in tune with the Pastor’s intentions and provide valuable insight into the upcoming events and opportunities to provide assistance to our parish community. He also serves as a liaison with the staff to facilitate support for parish activities.
Family of the Month: Bryan and Amanda Kantack: Bryan Kantack has been very active in the council’s main fundraiser, breakfast burrito production and sales. Both Bryan and Amanda have volunteered many hours with the parish youth ministry program. Bryan is also the operations director for the Rampart H.S. band.
Mr. Patrick Kelly’s tenure as the Order’s 14th supreme knight commenced on 1 March. He begins his term in office with a personal message to all Knights of Columbus members, which you can view by clicking below.
Chaplain Father Brad has been showing our council and the parish that he is proud to be a Knight from the time he became Pastor of Our Lady of the Pines last Summer. He has spoken well of us at Masses and even added our logo to the parish calendar. Father Brad’s support of the Knights is evident to all and very much appreciated by the council. We appreciate his leadership, advice and support as we continue to grow and support Our Lady of the Pines and our Pastor.
Congratulations to all who helped our council receive some recent prestigious awards!
We received the Columbian Award for our involvement in four areas: Community Programs, Faith Program, Family Programs, and Life Programs. Special thanks to Sir Knight John O’Rourke for championing the initiative.
Also, we received special recognition for being one of the Top 25 Councils in the State of Colorado! What a great fraternity we’ve become!
FYI, although 2020 was a different year making it harder to gather and participate in events, we still made some noteworthy contributions. Here’s our 2020 report.

Here is the Bible in a Year info. It takes about 20min/day.
1. The email talks about iTunes downloads. I have an Android phone and listen via Spotify, but any podcast app should work.
2. They recommend the Great Adventure Bible. I don’t have that version and am getting along fine. Looks like a good Bible though.
