Greater Austin Area Chapter of Knights of Columbus
12602 Parkland Drive Austin, TX 78729
The Knights of Columbus Diocesan Deputy is here to support the Councils, Assemblies and District Deputies located in the Austin Diocese. The Diocese will assign two Chapters to better align with the large geographic areas of the Austin Diocese. This chapter website will facilitate all Diocese and Chapter Communications to insure we get the message out to all councils and assemblies.
We invite you to join your Greater Austin Area Chapter, available to all Knights of Columbus Councils and Assemblies in the Diocese of Austin. We encourage all District Deputies to attend chapter and Diocese meetings with their councils.
