The meaning of Columbiettes
The Columbiette emblem includes a blue circle that represents the world. The rays going out from the cross reflect our desire to serve God through faith, hope and charity. Those three virtues are symbolized by the three white stars underneath the cross. The very word COLUMBIETTES incorporates our objectives as follows:

    - COOPERATE and work with the Knights of Columbus.
    - OFFER opportunity to participate in an active and militant program for women.
    - LEND assistance to the needy.
    - UNITE all Catholic women in converted action.
    - MEET with members of other Auxiliaries.
    - BELONG to an organization identified with the Knights of Columbus.
    - INSPIRE action in Civic and Community.
    - EDUCATE Catholic women to the need of the hour.
    - TRAIN others to carry on.
    - TAKE active interest in legislative matters that affect the Catholic way of life.
    - ENJOY fun in fraternity.
    - SERVE God and Country.

What we do
The Columbiettes are a unified body of Catholic women who work side-by-side with the Knights of Columbus. We care and we share. The activities and projects of our Order have been originated, developed and supported by our membership. Deep religious convictions are evident in all we do. Following are some of the Columbiettes’ activities

Retreats
Frequent Mass attendance
Sponsoring school activities
Eucharistic Ministry
CCD Teacher Volunteers

Improvement and accomplishing change in a rapidly changing world is dependent on a strong force of dedicated, Catholic women. The Columbiettes have taken a vital stand on issues, which are devastating to human life.

Abortion
Drug Abuse
Child Abuse


The Columbiettes were once a “Voice in the Wilderness” but time and effort have brought some response to that voice. Uncountable hours have been spent in letting our adversaries know how we feel.

Legislators have been bombarded with letters of protest, lobbying has been utilized; speakers have been employed to debate the issues with opponents. Volunteers have spent unending hours working with unwed mothers, providing them with encouragement and everyday needs.

Campaigns to alleviate drugs are on going. There is constant action to eliminate child abuse, euthanasia and pornography. We do care for all people and share of ourselves to make a better life for all.

Columbiettes are a gregarious group. The benefits from membership are many – spiritual, moral, educational and social.

Social activities are a necessary part of life. “No man is an island.” Such activities are not only enjoyable and make for lasting friendships but are most helpful in providing the financial where-with-all to support, materially, the programs and projects undertaken by the organization.

Show us you care. Share your talents with us. Email JKaren Sheehan at
kandk1111@verizon.net , our President if you are interested.
