The Ascension Knights of Columbus will be raising funds in spring 2023 through a new “baby bottle” campaign, to support local pregnancy centers and homes for mothers in need. The drive kicks off at the parish in March and ends on Mothers Day, Sunday, May 14.
Locally, our effort will support these four worthy organizations:
Our Lady’s Inn
Good Shepherd Children and Family Services

What it’s all about: Assistance and Support After Pregnancy describes the Knights of Columbus’ efforts to support pregnant women, mothers and their new children by serving pregnancy resource centers and maternity homes. These pro-life, non-profits are lifelines to women and babies in need and offer essential services that make the difference between a baby being aborted and a baby being born in a supportive environment. Pregnancy resource centers provide assistance to nearly 2 million clients each year. In 2021, Knights donated $4.6 million and 469,000 volunteer hours to support these centers and the women and children they serve through cash donations and community service activities such as baby and maternity item drives. These life-saving organizations would not be able to provide the level of assistance women and children need without support from our Order and collaborating parish communities. Through the ASAP initiative, councils can now contribute even more support. For every $500 a council donates to a qualifying pregnancy resource center or maternity home (up to $2,000), the Supreme Council will donate $100 more. Visit kofc.org/asap for more information.
