Knights of St. Columba
The Knights of St Columba was set up in Glasgow in Oct 1906. The order exists to support the mission of the Catholic Church and at the same time to work for the spiritual & material welfare of its members and their families.
St Mary Magdalen church is the home of Council 404. We endeavour to carry out charitable works by raising funds and supporting homes and our widows. We would welcome new members. Our monthly meetings are held on second Friday of the month at 8:00pm in the church Annex which was built by the Knights as their meeting hall.
