St. Patrick Knights of Columbus Council 8601 is a single parish council of St. Patrick Catholic Parish located at 12424 Brogdon Lane in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  The Council was chartered on St. Patricks Day in 1984 and currently has more than 140 members.  The Knights of Columbus is an internationally recognized organization with over 2 million members worldwide.

Meetings are held the 1st Thursday of each month in the parish Family Center adjacent to the church. You are invited to join us in our good works done for the parish, for youth, for seminarians, for those less fortunate, and in the fight to respect life. 

Being a Knight allows you to work with a team of men to give back to others in ways that many are unable to do as an individual.  If you are interested in opportunities to impact your community and grow deeper in your faith, the Knights of Columbus is for you. As Catholic men we are called to do more and the Knights help answer that call. We need you to help us achieve our goals. We have a lot to do, but don’t worry about how much there is to do, you are just needed to do what you can. And remember, it’s not only the Knights that need you, also your family needs you, your neighbors need you, your community needs you, and God needs you. So consider becoming a Knight and share your time and talents to serve your fellow man. At the same time, you will enjoy the camaraderie of other men in the parish who share the same values and duty to God and family that you do.

If you are a practical Catholic man, at least 18 years old and in agreement with the teachings of the church, now is the time to become a Knight!
