Regis St. Mary Catholic School
Regis St. Mary Catholic School is a small, faith-based PreK-12 school that enjoys an excellent reputation throughout the state in academics, service, athletics and extracurricular activities. As the state’s only rural Catholic PreK-12 school, it reflects the values of a committed and caring community. In a recent survey, parents indicated the top three reasons they chose Regis St. Mary were faith-based education, small and caring community and rigorous academic curriculum. It is only a natural St. Anthony Council would support Regis St. Mary School.
Mt. Angel Seminary
Since 1889, Mount Angel has sent thousands of priests to serve more than 11 million Catholics in nearly 100 dioceses and religious communities throughout the United States and around the world. The school is the oldest seminary in the Western United States, and the only seminary in the West that offers both a College and a Graduate school of Theology.
Today, Mount Angel is home to 159 seminarians from 23 dioceses and five religious communities. The seminary also serves 35 lay students working toward advanced degrees.
Neighbors helping Neighbors
Throughout the year, the St. Anthony Council is looking out for our neighbors. Among many examples: We provide money to families who have fallen behind on their rent. We help families whose home have been damaged by fire. We collect and distribute food baskets to community families in need. We are Faith in Action.
In addition to what we do here in our community, our council supports efforts of the Knights of Columbus around the world. From refugee relief, prevention of genocide, and disaster relief, Knights of Columbus Charities is there to help.
All our causes, making our community Stronger

“[The Knights of Columbus] is an Order composed of Catholics and instituted for the welfare of Catholic families. … Not only in sickness, but when death takes the support of the family away…”
“On this occasion I also wish to express my gratitude for the unfailing support which your Order has always given to the works of the Holy See.”
