Tens of thousands of families have benefited from Knights of Columbus Insurance in recent years. 


Members in the United States and Canada have exclusive access to our insurance program and products, including life insurance, retirement annuities, long-term care insurance, and disability income insurance.


Our Field Agent Martin Skipper is a Brother Knight who carries on the tradition of helping Knights and their families plan for their futures.  He is a member of St. John Vianney Parish and is also a proud member of our Council.

Father Mike Parent Commemorative Stone in the Knights of Columbus Garden

Last year, our Council's Executive with the support of our General Membership, moved to purchase and have a commemorative brick placed on the walkway of the Father Michael Joseph McGivney Memorial statue at Heavenly Rest Cemetery.  Father Mike being our Council's Founding Chaplain continues to be our spiritual leader while taking an active role in the running or our Council.  Father Mike joined the Knights of Columbus 48 years ago and is also a member of the Dean Wagner 4th Degree Assembly.  He follows in the foot steps of our founder, a humble Parish Priest who joins hands with the men of his Parish to help those in need and provide spiritual leadership to his flock.


It is with the deepest respect, gratitude and affection that our Council recognizes Fr. Mike's contribution with this tribute.
