Knights of Columbus
Saint John the Baptist has had an established Knights of Columbus Council since 1998. The Knights of Columbus is an organization of Catholic Men, age 18 and older, and their families. Our Council offers fundraisers, youth activities, spiritual support, community service, social gatherings, monthly Rosaries for Healing, and prepares meals for our parish family multiple times a year- Parish Picnic in summer, Lenten Fish Frys, and Blue Mass with Pancake Breakfast, to name a few.
The Knights of Columbus (K of C) was founded by the Venerable Father Michael J. McGiveney, in 1882. The K of C is built on family, faith and friendship and holds true to the principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and Patriotism. For more information, please visit our kiosk in the Church’s Gathering Space or call Louis Amarosa, Grand Knight, 801-878-9197.

AMIE (Ambulatory Medical Items Exchange) Program
As we age, there is a good chance that we have become owners of Ambulatory Medical Equipment such as wheel chairs, walkers, canes, crutches, commodes, etc. These items are still useable but are being stored in our attics, garages, and closets.
The Knights of Columbus is sponsoring its “AMIE” program, a working list of folks who have such items and would like to see them put to better use by others who find themselves needing them.
- The donor will continue to own and store the Medical Equipment (ME) until it is needed.
- When the chairman receives a request for that type of ME, he will call you first to see if it is still available and that your agree to either donate it or loan it for as long as it is needed.
- If you to agree to loan or donate the ME, the chairman then will contact the donee/patient to provide your contact information to arrange a mutual time for the ME exchange.
- The donee/patient will be subject to signing a Hold Harmless Agreement releasing the donor from any and all liability arising from this gift.
- In the equipment loan situation, when the patient no longer needs the ME, the donee returns it to the owner.
- The chairman will maintain an active list by ME type.
- Donor and Donee names’ addresses, email and phone numbers will be cross-referenced to the ME type.
