We are an organization like no other. 1.8 million members worldwide, and growing. An organization that has raised over a billion dollars for countless charitable causes.

We are men of faith. Guided not only by our belief in God and the Catholic Church, but by our belief in ourselves and in each other.

We are the Knights of Columbus. An organization strengthened by the successes of our past, and driven by our goals for the future. Dedicated to five key areas of service: faith, community, family, youth, and fellowship. Dedicated to making a difference. Since its founding in 1882 the Knights of Columbus has become the world's largest Catholic, family, fraternal organization dedicated to serving the church and community.

If you are a Catholic man 18 years or older and you wish to become closer to you family, or if you wish to strengthen your faith, or just want to give back to your community, we have something for you in the Knights of Columbus. Join Today.
