Founded in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney, in New Haven, Connecticut, The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic family and fraternal service organization with over 1.7 million members worldwide. We are dedicated to promoting the principles of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism.
We are a diverse group of Catholic men who come from all walks of life. We are 18, 38, and 70 years old. We come together in unity to serve and protect all that is right, through our community, church, and fellow man. We are the back bone of the American Catholic Church. Whenever you need us, we are not far away. Rain, Snow, or Shine we are, have, and will always be there. We have taken an Oath under GOD. We are a Father, Brother, Uncle, Son, or Cousin. We are your Boss, friend, coworker, and neighbor. In service to one, In service to all, we are the Knights of Columbus. By Dan Lewis
