Our mission and goal as a Catholic family-oriented organization is to assist the Colorado Knights of Columbus councils in support of our bishops, priests and Catholic values.
Our Charitable Mission
CHARITABLE: by offering financial contributions on behalf of the Auxiliaries to worthy charities in Colorado. Recipient organizations are recommended by Auxiliary members to be our charitable causes. SPIRITUAL: by creating opportunities for spiritual growth. Day trips, retreats and other prayerful gatherings provide spiritual enhancement for the heart, mind and soul. SOCIAL: by providing our ladies opportunities for social enrichment. We share our time and talents with other auxiliary members and the Knights of Columbus extended family.

Anna Mary McKinney served as the liaison in 1976. Claire Cavanaugh was the liaison person for the auxiliary in 1977. Our first president was Anna Mary McKinney who was elected in 1978.
