Blood Drives

Faith in Action 2022-2023

Council 3880 Sponsored Blood Drives

Our Blood Drives held net over 45 pints. Thank you all who gave the "Gift of Life". One pint donated can save three lives!


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.
