Our Council

The Ascension Knights were formed in Oak Park, IL in 2018 with help from the leadership of our Grand Knight, Ryan Patrick, and Ascension Parish Pastor, Fr. James Hurlbert with the idea of creating a brotherhood that works together to do good in our community and beyond. 

In just a short time, our Council has grown to a healthy size, and is currently involved in charitable works, volunteering, faith-building, fundraising, and social activities for families, the parish, and our community in general.

We are a welcoming Council that is open to new practicing Catholic members from all walks of life. If you have any questions, or would like to learn more about the Ascension Knights, please contact us anytime – we have plenty of opportunities for non-members to join in our activities to get a feel for what it’s like to be a Knight.
