The Columbiettes are an organization of over 13,000 catholic women, 17 years of age or older, who are affiliated with the Knights of Columbus. At present we have over 200 auxiliaries up and down the East Coast, Canada, and California.

As a charitable not for profit organization we support many different charities and are involved in community activities as well as working collectively with our Brother Knights to promote faith and unity. We also have many social events as well as our religious and charitable works where you will have the opportunity to meet other women who share your interest.

We are an organization of women from all backgrounds united by our Catholic faith, and our love of country and our commitment to helping others. Our patronesses are Our Blessed Mother, St. Therese Lisieux and St Joan of Arc.

Our purpose is to:

-Promote spiritual, social and charitable welfare of our members

-To instill a steadfast conviction relating to the proper place and function of all Catholic

-To rely upon the intercession of Mary, Our Mother and Model, for guidance in guarding the common good, and to work through her, on loving and aiding all members of the human family and to give assistance to the Knights of Columbus in all their activities upon request

Our social evenings are the 4th Wednesday of the month (but not every month), so please call Mary Ann – 718-376-8294 for more information.

The Pastoral Office of Sr. Jane Talbot at Our Lady of Grace runs a Feed the Homeless Ministry every Wednesday and Friday morning. This group has 14 volunteers that start the day with Mass at 8:45 a.m. and then walk over to the Rectory Meeting Room and start making sandwiches or hot meals for the homeless. They package the meals, and at approximately 12 noon other volunteers come down to pick up the food and coffee, and deliver it to a location in Coney Island for distribution to the homeless. On Friday mornings some of the group gather in the Meeting Room to help make breakfast and a light lunch for the homeless.

Sometimes money is donated from parishioners to keep the Ministry going. Contact Annette Bonvino-718-375-0668, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., for any questions.

The Thrift Shop is open Sunday – Tuesday- Thursday- Friday – 8am to 11am

You can drop off clothing, etc. at Sr. Jane’s Pastoral Ministry office 9 to 12 pm.

Please do not put bags in front of door if office is closed.
