History making Event by the Austin Chapter of the Knights of Columbus

Under the leadership of SK Kevin Brinkman, The Austin Chapter of the Knights of Columbus will be making history by hosting the 1st Austin Supreme Convention Party on August 4, 2015, at the Red Oak Ballroom in Austin through an interactive video link.

While this is a celebration, we also hope to raise money for the Knights of Columbus Texas Charities. In past years, we’ve able to help those affected by some of the disasters that struck our area:  the explosion in West, the terrible fire in Bastrop, the tornadoes that raged across Texas and Oklahoma, and many others. In the midst of these terrible tragedies, the Knights of Columbus were on the ground assisting people in need almost immediately.

Join Bishop Daniel Garcia, our local guest of honor, for a great meal of smoked brisket and turkey breast, traditional side dishes, iced tea, coffee, and dessert.

Tickets for this great event are only $35 per person. But space is limited and these tickets will go fast. Make your paid reservation by July 15th by going to and completing registration on-line. Then meet us at 6:00 p.m. on August 4th at the Red Oak Ballroom, just across the street from St. Louis King of France Parish.   This will be an exciting evening full of joy, shared wisdom, and a renewed sense of spiritual connection.

Don’t miss this amazing chance to draw to join with your fellow Catholics from the whole Austin Diocese in the service of Our Lady and Her Divine Son!
