Who are the Knights?
Father Michael J. McGivney founded the Knights of Columbus in 1882 at St. Mary’s in New Haven, CT. as an organization committed to Unity as a Catholic lay organization, Charity to those in need and Fraternity with fellow brother knights. Today, Knights and their families remain true to these principles and work to spread Columbianism around the world. You and your family will benefit from membership in the Knights of Columbus. Join today and help make a better tomorrow. Some of these areas are:
  • Conducting works of charity
  • Promoting human dignity and rights
  • Fostering respect for life
  • Fostering Religious liberty
  • Promoting social and economic justice
  • Promoting education, culture and art
  • Promoting vocations, including religious, marriage, family life and youth
  • Most REV. Jerome Hanus, O.S.B., Archbishop of Dubuque has stated, “As Archbishop of Dubuque, I heartily endorse the presence, programs and goals of the Knights of Columbus. Among the various programs sponsored by the Knights of Columbus, I especially commend those in favor of Family Life, Pro-life, Church Vocations, Special Olympics, and the current support for our priests. I encourage more Catholic men to join the Knights of Columbus, bringing their families into the circle of this wonderful fraternal organization. May God bless the Knights of Columbus. Vivat Jesus.” As the largest organization of Catholic men in the world, the Knights of Columbus plays a leading role in service to our Church, our Country and families. However, the larger and stronger our Order becomes, the bigger job it can do. We need new men with new ideas and the enthusiasm for the work we have ahead of us.
