Welcome to the Knights of Columbus
About the Knights of Columbus
Fr. Michael J. McGivney founded the Knights of Columbus in 1882 as a fraternal benefit society at a time in the United States when Catholic immigrants were being forced to renounce their faith in order to earn a livelihood for their families. Our mission is to keep Fr. McGivney’s dream alive, to actively seek out Catholic men and invite them to be a part of our community of Christian family life through participation in our social and fraternal programs of service to our Church, community and youth.
