The Fr. John Manning Council of the Knights of Columbus was organized in March, 1979. Affiliated with the national organization, the Knight's activities are not solely confined to the parish.

Membership is voluntary. Members are from St. Alphonsus, as there is no other Catholic church in Henry County.

The K of C sponsors money raising events such as auctions, dances and dinners. They receive Holy Communion on the fourth Sunday of the month, attend retreats and contribute to parish and community needs.
