Welcome to the web site of the Knights of Columbus Council #9518 of St. Gerald Catholic Church in Ralston, Nebraska. We invite all practicing Catholic men of our parish age 18 and older to join our ranks and take a more active role in their faith. Please take a few moments to view the rest of this site and feel free to contact our Membership Director for more information.
Our council meets the 3rd Thursday of every month at 7 p.m. We start our meetings with either a mass or praying the rosary at the 96th & Q church.
About Our Council
Council #9518 was chartered in 1987 and is named after Fr. William A. Foster. We are affiliated with St. Gerald Parish in Ralston and many other organizations within the Ralston & Omaha metro area. We started our Council with 46 charter members with the first Chaplain being Fr. William A. Foster and the first Grand Knight, Jim McNamara. Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism are the cornerstones of our Order which focuses on active involvement by our members in the areas of church, community, council, family and youth.
There are over 2,600 families at St. Gerald Parish. Our Council Chaplain is Father Owen Korte. We currently have a nice mix of younger and 'more seasoned members which has given our council a wonderful balance of energy and character. With all the Family, Youth, Service, Parish, and Community Activities that we sponsor every year we believe there are many reasons to join Council #9518.
