The Bethalto Knights of Columbus was founded on November 2, 1958. Our council serves the Parish of Our Lady Queen of Peace in Bethalto, IL, which is a member of the Springfield diocese, our fellow Brothers in Christ, and our Nation. The chapter has over 300 members and is active in serving the Bethalto community. Recent council activities include the annual Tootsie-Roll drive to help disabled children and adults, Special Olympics held at the SIU Edwardsville track, the basketball and soccer tournaments for the youth in Bethalto, and many other activities to benefit Our Lady Queen of Peace Church and the Bethalto community.
The Bethalto K of C Council holds its meetings on the second and fourth Monday of every month in the council hall. We say the rosary beginning at 6:45pm and the meeting starts immediately afterwards. There we discuss our business and enjoy the company of our brother Knights. If you are interested in serving your fellow man and joining the Knights of Columbus, we invite you to speak with one of our Knights or send us a message and we will be glad to answer your questions about the K of C.
The Bethalto Knights of Columbus invite you to browse our site and see the many activities the K of C are involved in - one of which just might be something you would enjoy helping with or learning more about.
