Why become a Knight of Columbus?
1) As an integral part of the world's largest and most dynamic Catholic fraternal organization, you will be united with more than 1.7 million brother knights and their families in over 13,000 local councils in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Philippines, Poland, Central America, and the Caribbean.
2) Your personal involvement as a knight will provide opportunities in charity and fraternity, for service to the Church at the local, diocesan, and universal levels, to your community, and to the less fortunate in our midst.
3) Your active participation in council affairs: spiritual, fraternal, family, social, civic-oriented, athletic and recreational - will serve as a school of leadership and enable you to develop qualities that enhance your strengths and abilities.
4) You will enjoy a sense of "belonging" in an organization that shares your religious beliefs, brings together like-minded men joined in a common cause, and offers the opportunity to develop and cement friendships for years to come.
5) Your concerns for your family and for your retirement years can be addressed by the order's low-cost insurance program, conducted by brother knights for brother knights, and assure their security and your peace of mind.
6) You will share in the sense of pride all knights feel in knowing that their order is second to none in support of our Holy Father, our Bishops and priests; in working for our fellow man, especially those most in need; and in binding together to preserve traditional values in the face of attacks against the family and innocent human life.
Who may join?
Membership in the Knights of Columbus is open to men 18 years of age or older who are practical (that is, practicing) Catholics in union with the Holy See. This means that an applicant or member accepts the teaching authority of the Catholic Church on matters of faith and morals, aspires to live in accord with the precepts of the Catholic Church, and is in good standing in the Catholic Church.
The order was founded in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney for the purpose of protecting immigrant Catholic widows and orphans.
