The Knights of Columbus is the world's largest Catholic family fraternal service organization with 1.7 million members. It provides members with volunteer opportunities in service to the church, community and family. The organization is family-orientated and founded on the concepts of charity, unity, fraternity, patriotism and defense of the priesthood. Supporting these ideals, we concentrate in organizing and funding activities that focus on family, council, community, church and youth at the local and national level.
Membership is open to all Catholic men 18 years of age or older who live up to the commandments of God and the precepts of the Catholic Church. Once a member, you will enjoy a sense of "belonging" in an organization that shares your religious beliefs and brings together like-minded men joined in a common cause.
Charities and service activities that our Council participates in include:
- Coats for Kids
- Sisu Integrated Early Learning (formally known as Challenged Child)
- Special Olympics
- Healing Hands Ministry
