Our monthly business meetings are the first Thursday of each month. Meetings are at 7:30pm in Collins Hall at St. Bridget parish.
About Our Council
St. Bridget Council was founded in 1988 through the efforts of the men of the newly-formed parish of St. Bridget and is named after our home parish. Council 9800 works closely with our parish in Mesa, AZ, providing funds for a variety of projects, including the parish building fund, St. Vincent DePaul, and our annual scholarship awards. Brother Knights provide many volunteer hours supporting many ministries at our parish as well as in our community. As of this writing, our council is over 200 members strong and is one of the more active in Arizona. We have made Star Council many years.

Knights in Action!
Brothers of 9800,
Greeting to all of you Brothers,
Donut & Coffee / recruiting Sunday coming up Sunday April 1st. As we do every first Sunday of the month KOC 9800 will host donuts / coffee and be available to talk with other Catholic gentlemen about the Knights. Additionally we will be handing out the remaining Tootsie Rolls to kids after each Mass. If any brother can help with either handing out the candy and or slinging donuts and coffee please email me ASAP so I know all masses will be covered.
Any Knight that can please remain a few minutes after your particular Mass for either one of these Knights of Columbus commitments to our parish. (If you can wear your Council shirts!).
April business meeting will be held Thursday April 12th starting at 7:30 PM inside Collin's Hall. (Officers meeting to take place downstairs starting at 6:30 PM.) We have much to discuss, including hearing the first reading of the slate of officers for the next Fraternal Year, as well as a recap of our very successful Lenten Fish-Fry!
ADOPT -A-HIGHWAY clean up: We have suspended Adopt-A-Highway until we can be sure that the County will collect the trash bags after our Saturday pick-up events. Stay Tuned.
Officer Installation: Thanks to our Worthy DD John Scopellite, his Worthy Warden Bob Carlson, Fr. Charlie and all of our brothers and families who attended our installation for the fraternal year 2017-2918. A good time was had by all. I wish to thank all our brothers for their confidence and support in re-electing all of the current officers. We will strive with God's help to make Council 9800 an example to all of what the Knights of Columbus stand for, Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism.
St. Bridget Council 9800 Officers for Fraternal Year 2017-2018
May God shed His Grace upon you all.
SK Kevin Harris, Grand Knight
