    Father Gabriel Council #3746 Visit:

    2150 S. Dairy Rd, Melbourne, FL 32902

    Brother Knights & Council Family, Fellowship …….. The church exists primarily for two closely correlated purposes: to worship God and to work for his kingdom in the world ... The church also exists for a third purpose, which serves the other two: to encourage one another, to build one another up in faith, to pray with and for one another, to learn from one another and teach one another, and to set one another examples to follow, challenges to take up, and urgent tasks to perform. This is all part of what is known loosely as fellowship.” N. T. Wright I want to invite all to become more active at our council. Currently, we have a few families who are always involved in helping with our events, the management of our Hall and Lounge and who always attend our Friday Socials. We have so much to offer and we really get to know and appreciate one another. FELLOWSHIP, it begins with you taking part in the great family organization we have to offer our parish & community. So please take a look at our calendar and events and see you very soon!!

    KofC SERVICE RECOGNITION For those Brother Knights who have served our Knights of Columbus Order for over 15 years:

    With Honor & In Special Recognition  September Knight of the Month – BK Tom Smith

    Thank you to all of you for all the hard work! GK Orlando Rodriguez

     September Family of the Month – BK Vince & Gwen Greco

    Frankly speaking, our council would not be where it is today if it was not for these Brother Knights and their families. Time and again, when you walk into our council home or in the middle of serving food and drink at our Friday Social, you will find these family members busy working and serving our council family. It take times to dedicate work and effort for our cause and even more when more of our family members do not participate, at least a small amount. We have a wonderful council home, getting better and better, thanks to the efforts of council family members like these.
