A Knight of Columbus is a Practical Catholic Man

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. This means that an applicant or member 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.

Reasons to Join the Knights of Columbus

  • Join a band of brothers, a network of men in communities around the world dedicated to corporal works of mercy in the service of God and our neighbor.
  • Share in the sense of pride all Knights feel in knowing that their Order is second to none in support of our Holy Father, our bishops and priests; in working for our fellow man, and especially those most in need.
  • Support your Parish by putting your Catholic faith into action.
  • Be a part of the New Evangelization.
  • Reach out to meet community needs through programs of charity and service and deepen your faith through volunteerism.
  • Give back to your community by putting your principles and ideals into action.
  • Work with people who have similar beliefs, values, and interests.
  • Uphold Catholic teaching by defending marriage, families and building a culture of life.
  • Build and strengthen Catholic fellowship among families.
  • Provide for the financial security of our members and their families through our Fraternal Benefits program.
