The Knights of Columbus is a global Catholic fraternal service order founded by Fr. Michael J. McGivney that defends, serves, and protects families.

All the good works we do are informed by our four core principles:The Knights of Columbus Logo that is a badge with K of C across the shield

Charity – Our Catholic faith teaches us to “Love thy neighbor as thyself.” Members of the Knights of Columbus donate funds to food pantries, by volunteering time to the parish and community supporting, mothers who choose life for their babies. There is no better way to experience love and compassion than by helping those in need, a call we answer every day.

Unity – Members of the Knights of Columbus all know that – together – we can accomplish far more than any of us could individually. 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 – 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 good works of individual Knights, who gave more than 75.6 million service hours in 2017, illustrating how Catholics serve each other in fraternity and mercy.

Patriotism – Members of the Knights of Columbus, be they Americans, Canadians, Mexicans, Cubans, Filipinos, Poles, or Dominicans, are patriotic citizens. We are proud of our devotion to God and country, and believe in standing up for both.
