Who are the Knights of Columbus?

Founded by a young parish priest now on the path to Sainthood, the Knights of Columbus has helped strengthen men, their families, their parishes, and their communities since 1882.  Today there are more than 1.9 million members of the Knights of Columbus doing good across the world.  The Knights of Columbus stand as the strong right arm of the Church, and challenges members to grow in their Faith through programs, fraternity and exclusive membership benefits.

How can I join the Knights of Columbus?

Please contact our Grand Knight if you are interested in joining.

Since 1882, membership in the Knights of Columbus has been open to men 18 years of age or older who are “practical” (that is practicing) Catholics in union with the Holy See.  Since that time, the Knights of Columbus has understood “practical catholic” to mean a Catholic who accepts the teaching authority of the Catholic Church on matters of Faith and Morals, aspires to live in accord with the precepts of the Catholic Church, and is in good standing in the Catholic Church.

I am a Knight.  How can I get involved?

Our council meets on the second Tuesday of the month unless rescheduled because of holidays, beginning at 7:00 PM in the parish hall to conduct council business.  The general council meeting is open to all members of the Knights of Columbus.  Please contact our Grand Knight for more information.
