About  Knights of Columbus Council 12050

Grand Terrace Knights of Columbus Council 12050 was organized through the efforts of Brother Knights in Loma Linda  Council 9037 living in Grand Terrace and surrounding areas. Membership Director Leo Vinzon, Fr. Robert Tomkins of Christ the Redeemer Parish, Grand Knight William Kotlensky and Brothers Manuel Palencia, Bob Butkus and Charles Hershey spearheaded the new council's development. A charter organizational meeting was held on September 4, 1997 at Christ the Redeemer Parish Hall. A total of 18 Brother Knights transferred from the Loma Linda Council to the new Grand Terrace Council. These along with 14 additional Brother Knights joining the Grand Terrace Council constituted the charter members of the new council. Installation of officers for the charter council was conducted by District Deputy Dan Krafcisin on November 8, 1997.

The Council is named after our city located in southern California. Grand Terrace Council works closely with Christ the Redeemer Parish in Grand Terrace, providing funds for various projects, members being  active participants in their parish.
