"The Knights of Columbus, with more than 1.8 million members, is the world’s largest lay Catholic fraternal service organization. It provides members and their families with volunteer opportunities in service to the Catholic Church, its’ pastors, and their community. The guiding principles of the order are Charity; Unity; Fraternity; and, Patriotism.
Knights are Catholic men, 18 years of age or older, who are committed to making their community a better place while supporting their church. Being a Knight is more than camaraderie; it is being involved with your community; it is supporting the Church while enhancing your own faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life.
