Our council of  the Knights of Columbus council was founded in 1993 and represents the parish of the Church of the Nativity in Leawood, KS. The Church of the Nativity is located at 3800 West 119th Street, Leawood, KS 66209. The Parish Office phone number is (913) 491-5017.

Our council has approximately 200 members and the current officers are displayed to the right.  We are a very active council and can always use a few more good men to help us with the many activities we undertake throughout the year. If you would like to get involved with our council, please use the Contact page or show up to one of our scheduled events and ask a fellow Knight for details.

Fund Raising Efforts

  • Pancake Breakfasts / BBQ Dinners: Several per year with proceeds benefiting our general fund.
  • Roses for Life: Every January with proceeds benefiting pro-life causes.
  • Lenten Fish Fry's: 6 weeks during Lent with proceeds benefiting our general fund.
  • Football Raffle: 17 week profession football lottery raffle with proceeds benefiting our general fund.
  • Tootsie Roll Drive:  Every October with proceeds benefiting the mentally challenged.

What We Support

  • Seminarians: One of the core principals of the Knights is to support the Church. Encouraging and supporting those considering the Priesthood and those attending a seminary is vital. Our council currently supports six to eight local seminarians with prayers and approximately $800.00 - $1,000.00 per seminarian per year.
  • Local Church: Aside from the community building activities of our fish fry's, BBQ Dinners and breakfasts, we actively try to support the major events that happen at the Church of the Nativity. Our council has given regularly to the Nativity PTO's Teachers Christmas appreciation fund. We regularly work with other parish organizations and the parish administration to help sponsor, coordinate or fund special events throughout the year like an ordination reception, the Fall Festival, Breakfast with Santa, alter server training, set up and maintenance of the Nativity Scene, as well as our own Free Throw Competition.
  • Community: Our council's annual Tootsie Roll drive raises money for children with mental disabilities. Eighty percent of the money raised stays local, which allows us to donate to the Lake Mary Center in Paola, KS. Our council's annual Roses for Life drive raises money for pro-life causes and all the money raised goes to local pro-life organizations. We also participate in the St Mary's Food Kitchen by hosting a BBQ meal during the month of August.
