About Us


Reinhart Schroeder

The Brother Reinhart Schroeder Knights of Columbus Council #9409 is a Catholic, Fraternal organization that lives by the founding principles of charity, unity and fraternity in support of Our Lady of Fatima Church in Biloxi, MS.

Our Council, named after Brother Reinhart Schroeder, an extremely popular and prominent Catholic Gentleman and Knight of Columbus. He was not just a Catholic but an active member of Our Lady of Fatima Parish and a strong member of the Holy Name Society. He was also a Past Grand Knight of Biloxi Council 1244 from 1973-1974. While he was a member of that council he was a main player on the only certified 1st, 2nd and 3rd Degree Initiation team within our state. Performing degree work was something that he loved to do and continued as a team member for over 10 years. It was while participating in the Third Degree Initiation being conducted in Bassfield, Mississippi on January 28, 1979 that he passed away.
