Knights of Columbus Third Degree, Council 10208

Over 2,000,000 Knights in 4,607 International Councils dedicate themselves to the principals of charity, fraternity, unity, and patriotism.  The SHJ-based Council supports faith-based and charitable initiatives within our parish and the surrounding community, although they operate under the Supreme Council in New Haven, CT, and the Arkansas State Council's leadership. They are not a parish organization, per se, but their activities and volunteerism permeate our parish life.  Well over half of the parish men are Knights of Columbus (315 current members).  The Knights participate with the Parish Life Committee in a coordination and support role within the parish.  The six primary areas of all Knights' activities include Culture of Life, Church, Family, Youth, Community, and their Council activites.  Council 10208 meetings generally fall on the first Tuesday of every month.  Dues are approximately $30 annually.  Contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

Sacred Heart Bowling League

Bowling is a year round organization incorporating 2 separate leagues:  one league in the summer (evening), runs about 10 wks and one in the fall (afternoon), runs til' mid-April.  There is a handicap system which makes it possible for bowlers of all skill levels to compete fairly against one another. Cost is currently $13/week which includes 3 games and prize money at the end of the season.  If you are unable to commit to a league or miss the deadline, consider being a substitute.  We are always looking for additional folks to share in fellowship fun with one another.
