The Msgr. Christopher Dennen Assembly 2017 supports the Knights of Columbus Councils and Catholic Churches in the Greater Wilmington, NC, area. Our members are leaders in their respective councils and have taken an additional pledge of Patriotism because of their love of God and country.
Through the coming year you can expect to see our members marching in the Veteran’s Day Parade, laying a wreath during Wilmington’s Memorial Day Event, participating in US Flag ceremonies in our schools, supporting the Honor Flight, and cooking meals quarterly at the Sgt. Eugene Ashley Memorial Center for veterans in residence.
Our monthly meetings (third Tuesday of the month) include prayer, patriotism, and fellowship. Although we are a Catholic men’s fraternal organization, we include events for spouses and friends of the organization.
