COLUMBIAN SQUIRES The Columbian Squires are the official youth organization of the Knights of Columbus. Membership in the Squires is for practicing Catholic boys between the ages of 10 and 18. A practicing Catholic is one who lives up to the Commandments of God and the precepts of the Church. The benefits of being a squire are learning leadership skills, having fun in group activities, and helping our church and community through service. Each circle elects officers from their own membership, teaching skills of leadership and responsibility. While a Columbian Squires Circle is member governed and driven, it is encouraged, mentored, and advised by adult Knights of Columbus. The St. Charles Borromeo Columbian Squires Circle 5584 was charted by the Supreme Knights of Columbus on March 25, 2012 with 19 new Squires. Our current membership is 26. Members of our Squires circle are certified to conduct the induction ceremony of new Squires Circles at other locations anywhere in the State of Ohio.
Some of the activities that our Squires participate in are: Family Rosary Rally, Council 14995 RibFest fundraiser, Special Olympics (bowling and Track & Field), St. Charles Christmas Food Baskets, Coffee Klatsch, and providing assistance for other Council 14995 and St. Charles Parish activities.
RECENT and FUTURE ACTIVITIES The newly elected officers for the 2020- 2021 fraternal year are: Chief Squire, Benjamin Kaufman ; Deputy Chief Squire, Henry Kaufman ; Bursar, Jackson Wright; Notary, Jakob Ross.
On 3/19, 6 squires and 2 knights worked the St. Charles Fish-n-Chips event. In 22 manhours, the crew of 8 transferred approximately 500 orders from the order takers in the church and school parking lots to the order fillers in the school cafeteria. The event organizers, the St. Charles PTO and St. Charles Athletic Boosters, will donate the proceeds from 1,000+ meals to the St. Charles-Borromeo school. The Squires participated in the Stations of the cross on Friday, March 26.
