Council 3303 Officers
Welcome to the web site of New Bern Council 3303, home of the May, 2015 State Convention . 


Council 3303 has received a letter of endorsement from the Most Reverend Michael Burbidge, Bishop of Raleigh, to change its name.  This Council will now be Monsignor James R. Jones Council 3303.  Msgr. Jones was a beloved brother and passionate supporter of the Knights of Columbus.



        A Message From The Knights

The KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS are founded on the principles of charity, unity, and fraternity.  Council 3303 serves the needy citizens of the New Bern Community.  Perhaps we can assist you.  Phone 252-633-5632 and leave a message.


Father Kenneth I. Parker Assembly # 1820 Knights of Columbus recently installed new officers for the Fraternal Year 2014-2015. The installation was at St. Paul Catholic Church followed by dinner at the Flame Restaurant.

The Knights contribute their time, talent and treasure for many community needs.

Your support for the new slate of officers will be greatly appreciated. Volunteer, get involved and take a more active role in the Knights.




Our New Bern Council has accepted the invitation to host the 2015 annual Knights of Columbus North Carolina convention. The dates are May 15 -17 2015. Some initial planning has already taken place. Below is a list of functions, activities and some volunteers for these functions that have already stepped forward. As you can see we still need a lot of help in all areas. There will be a brief introduction meeting on Wednesday at the Knights Hall at 6:30 PM to review where we are and some timelines for completing certain key tasks. All are welcome to attend. If you are unable to attend but can help in certain areas please call or e-mail me. I know that we can always count on our council members to step up whenever there is a need.


Thanks for volunteering.

SK Larry Spallanzani organized a pot luck dinner for all Knights and their families at Fairfield Harbour on September 14.  The event was enjoyed by a large number of Knights and their spouses.  Here is a group picture:

We are planning a discussion of Knight's Benefits and other timely topics such as how to keep your assets in your family, how to adopt ways to cover taxes to heirs of estates and new K of C insurance programs.

This presentation will be by Robert Leonardo, our Field Agent, and there will be plenty of time for questions and discussion.
We will hold this following our Council Meeting on November 4th, which starts at 7 PM and the Presentation will start at approximately 8 PM. Refreshments will be served.

All are invited and make sure you bring your wife. There will be refreshments for them during our meeting. Also, if you know of someone who might be a potential Knight, make sure you ask them, as this will describe some of the benefits of being a Knight.
We look forward to seeing you at this special event.
