Knights of St. Philip's

The Knights of St. Philip’s Episcopal Church was organized on the Eve of St. Mark’s Day, April 24, 1961. The main objective of the order of men is to demonstrate by concerted effort in prayer, giving and work the love we have for our parish and its effectiveness upon the community. The members of the Knights believe that it is an honor to work, pray and give for the spread of God’s Kingdom here on earth. In the name of this order, we shall work as one for the furtherance of this part of Our Lord’s Vineyard, solely to His Honor and His Glory. Our motto is “To Work—To Pray –To Give”

Any active male adult communicant of St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in good standing who is willing to take an active part in the prayer life of the group may be considered for membership. We encourage all eligible males through special membership activities and personal contacts to become members of our organization. Currently, the Knights have 34 members. The meetings are held monthly with the exception of the summer months, July and August.

The Knights have financially supported the following projects in the Church:

  • Hosted Men’s Day, Lenten Dinner, CARITAS and Fellowship Hour
  • Donated funds for church picnic, youth ministry, installation of lights in the atrium, installation of card and pencil holders, sanctuary flowers, stripping and waxing of floors in the parish hall, Valentine Ball, purchasing of dishwasher, replacement of tables in the parish hall
