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 Council 9800
Thank you all:
First of allI wish to thank each and everyone of you for allowing me the honor of being your Grand Knight for the past 2 years. I could not have kept leading all of the the fantastic parish and community efforts that Council 9800 performs each and every year without your assistance. I hope that all of you will continue to support your new Grand Knight Jim Moore and his Deputy Paul Saliba, as well as all the incoming officers of your council.
I want to say this phrase one last time (Im sure that you are sick of hearing it)
This is YOUR Council, Your Officers and YOUR programs that 9800 is involved in. Without YOU nothing can happen, remember that and participate in each and every KofC 9800 activity and parish activity that you can find the time for. Make your advanced Degrees, become an officer, lead a program or suggest a new program.
In short get off it and join in! Once again thank you for being there for our fraternity, our parish, our council and for me.
Now down to business;
Next Sunday July 1st is KOC 9800 Donut & Coffee Sunday. Please take a few minutes after the Mass that you are already attending and help hand out coffee & donuts and recruit for 9800. Wear your Council 9800 shirts and name tags, reach out and talk to other parishioners and enjoy a cup of coffee,a donut (or two) and hanging out with some of your fellow Knights. (see you there!)
