Knights of Columbus
The Knights were founded in 1882 when Fr. Michael J. McGivney and a small group of men founded a society designed to provide some security for widows and orphans of Catholic parishioners. Fr. McGivney’s idea grew into an order of Catholic men and their families. This order is dedicated to promoting the ideals of charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism. Today there are over 1.9 million members throughout the world.

Knights are Catholic men, 18 years of age and older, who are committed to making their community a better place, while supporting their Church. Being a Knight is more than camaraderie; it is being involved with your community; it is supporting your local Catholic Church, while enhancing your own faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life.
