St. Ignatius Loyola Council # 10861
The St. Ignatius Loyola Council was founded in 1992 through the efforts of the charter members who are far too many to list here. It is named after St. Ignatius Loyola, who is the patron saint of our parish. The St. Ignatius Loyola Council works closely with the St. Ignatius Loyola Catholic Community in Spring, TX, providing funds for various projects, with its members being active participants throughout their parish.
Our Council received a letter and certificate from Supreme Knight Carl Anderson in "grateful recognition of 25 years of service to our Order's principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism"

Successful Year (Texas Knight, Aug. 2016)
A successful year of fundraising allowed Knights of Columbus Council 10861 of St. Ignatius Loyola in Spring to donate more than $20,000 in charitable giving this fraternal year.
In addition to parish breakfasts and Lenten fish fries, the Council hosted successful Wine Tasting, Beer, Brats & Brothers and Casino events to raise funds this year.
The Council made a $10,000 donation to the St. Ignatius Capital Campaign to help pay for our parish’s new Gonzaga Center.
Council 10861 also made donations for seminarian support and the priest retirement home in our Archdiocese.
In June the Council awarded the Danny Barrera Memorial Scholarship to two graduating seniors from our parish – Isabel Nolte and Abigail Dommert – who excelled in community service, leadership and academics. Both students are daughters of Knights in our Council. Nolte will attend Texas A&M this fall while Dommert will attend Notre Dame.
