The Ladies Auxiliary is a Christian organization affiliated with the Knights of Columbus Council #12497. We welcome women 18 years of age or older, married or single. It is not necessary that your husband, father or brother be a member of the Knights of Columbus.
Our four areas of focus are Church, Country, Council and Community. In particular, we support vocations, women’s outreach, community development, charitable activities and Catholic education.
We work closely with the St. Patrick and St. John Neumann Parishes, members being active participants in their Parish, Fox Valley communities and in providing funds and labor for various projects. Our dues is $15 per year.
In April 2008, the Grand Knight, Tim Cooper, recruited ladies from St. Patrick’s and St. John Neumann’s to attend an informational meeting for the new Ladies Auxiliary chapter. The initial officers elected at the meeting were: Alice Sury (President), Marci Rodriguez (VP), April Lynch (Secretary), Ann DeMartino (Treasurer) and (Trustees) Mary Staples, Julia Cooper and Justine Yergen. The first official meeting was May 5, 2008.
