A Catholic Non Profit Charitable Service Organization

Who are the Knights of Columbus?

The Knights of Columbus is the world's largest Catholic fraternal service organization. Founded in 1882, it was named in honor of the explorer Christopher Columbus. 

Originally serving as a mutual benefit society to working-class and immigrant Catholics in the United States, it developed into a fraternal benefit society dedicated to providing charitable services, including war and disaster relief, actively defending Catholicism in various nations, and promoting Catholic education. 

The Knights also support the Catholic Church's positions on public policy issues, including various political causes, and are participants in the new evangelization.  

There are over 1.9 million members around the world. Membership is limited to practicing Catholic men aged 18 or older. 

The order consists of four different degrees, each exemplifying a different principle of the order. The nearly 15,000 councils, including over 300 on college campuses, are chartered in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Philippines, and around the world. 

The order's patriotic arm, the Fourth Degree, has more than 2,500 assemblies. 

Our Mission

Pope John Paul II referred to the Knights of Columbus  as the "strong right arm of the Church" for their support of the church, as well as for their philanthropic and charitable efforts. 

In 2017, the order gave over US $185 million directly to charity and performed over 76.5 million man-hours of voluntary service in their local communities and around the world, part of the $1.60 billion given to charity over the past 10 years.

We've consistently grown since then, all thanks to the helping hands of this amazing community!

What do the Knights of Columbus do?

Knights of Columbus is a Catholic fraternal organization dedicated to promoting and conducting educational, charitable, religious and social welfare works, rendering mutual aid and assistance to sick and needy members and their families, and providing insurance products and annuities to benefit members, wives and children.

We organize many fundraising events in the community and state. 

Our members volunteer much of their time and services in support of our charitable works to care for those in need.
