The framework of our great organization is that we are a “Catholic, family, fraternal, service organization”.    This theme permeates the entire Service Program: all church, community, council, family and youth activities. CATHOLIC is ­the common denominator for all our members.  Catholicism serves as the foundation for continued growth for our faith in God.  FAMILY is the very basis of society around which all our programs and activities evolve.   FRATERNITY means ­banding together for the purpose of providing for spiritual and material welfare of our membership. SERVICE means our involvement with and commitment to Church, community, council, family and youth.

The Protection of Human Life The Knights of Columbus is unambiguously and proudly pro-life. In accordance with the teachings of the Catholic Church, the Order defends human life from the moment of conception until natural death. Building a new Culture of Life where every human life is welcomed and protected by law is one of the highest priorities of the Order!

Church Support – Supporting the Catholic Church has been a hallmark of the Knights of Columbus. From funding the restoration of the facade of St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome to operating an usher ministry at a local parish, the Knights of Columbus serves the Church in countless ways. Annually, the Order raises and distributes more than $45 million to Church groups in support of programs at the local, national and international levels.

Local Knights and their families donate more than 25 million hours of volunteer time to the Church each year. ‘In Solidarity with our Priests’ – we heartily support Vocations to the Priesthood and Religious Life!  By becoming a Knight you can be an added voice, a helping hand to mankind, a sign to someone less fortunate – which God truly loves and cares for them.
