Faith in Action 2021-2022

Council 3880 Sponsored IDDF

We collect funds via donations from the people of communities surrounding Crystal Lake and dispurse them to various Charities around the area.


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.

Knights of Columbus ID Tootsie Roll Drive
Helping those who need our support

The Intellectual Disabilities or “Tootsie Roll Drive” is one of the most recognizable activities that the Knights of Columbus does each year. Funds generated from this drive are used to support local programs which help people with special learning needs.

This year’s drive is Friday September 17 & Saturday September 18. Knights, their families and other volunteers will be collecting donations outside designated store fronts throughout Crystal Lake.

This charitable activity is open to all parish members and their families as well, and also serves as an excellent opportunity for students to earn much needed services hours.

Volunteers are asked to check-in approximately 15 minutes before their scheduled time at

St. Thomas the Apostle Parish Center

272 King Street (Pierson & King Streets)
