We are a faith-based organization focused on fraternity, unity, charity and patriotism. We try to help make the world around us a better, happier place. With the help of our tireless members, we organize fundraisers, exciting community-building events, and other social activities. We have a commitment to life, family and fatherhood. The Knights of Columbus were founded in 1882 as a means of providing support to widows and orphans of Catholic men. There are over one million members world wide and the Knights are the largest Catholic men's fraternal organization. If you are not already a member and would like to join our council, please contact us.
