We are a Catholic Fraternal Service Organization
called to be a quality institution that genuinely lives out the
objectives of Columbianism.
All the good works we do are informed by our four principles:
CHARITY – UNITY – FRATERNITY – PATRIOTISM.
CHARITY – Our Catholic faith teaches us to “love they neighbor as thyself”. Members of the Knights of
Columbus show love for their neighbors by conducting food drives and donating the food to local soup
kitchens and food pantries,by volunteering at Special Olympics, and by supporting, both spiritually and
materially mothers who choose life for their babies. Knights recognize that our mission, and our faith in God,
compels us to action. There is no better way to experience love and compassion than by helping those in
need, a call we answer every day.
UNITY – None of us is as good as all of us. Members of the Knights of Columbus all know that – together –
we can accomplish far more than any of us could individually. So we stick together…we support one
another. That doesn’t mean that we always agree or that there is never a difference of opinion. It does
mean that – as a Knight of Columbus – you can count on the support and encouragement of your brother
Knights as you work to make life better in your parish and community.
FRATERNITY – The Venerable Michael J. McGivney founded the Knights of Columbus, in large part, to
provide assistance to the widows and children left behind when the family breadwinner died – often
prematurely. The Order’s top-rated Insurance program continues to do this today, as do individual Knights,
who last year gave more than 10 million hours of their time to assist sick and/or disabled members and their
families. In the Knights of Columbus, we watch out for and take care of one another.
PATRIOTISM – Members of the Knights of Columbus, be they Americans, Canadians, Mexicans, Cubans, Filipinos, Poles, Dominicans, etc – they are patriotic citizens. We are proud of our devotion to God
and country, and believe in standing up for both. Whether it’s in public or private, the Knights remind the
world that Catholics support their nations and are amongst the greatest citizens.
Membership in the Knights of Columbus is open to men 18 years of age or older who are practical (that is, practicing) Catholics in union with the Holy See. A practical Catholic 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.
