The Knights of Columbus (KCs) is the world’s largest Catholic fraternal service organization offering men an opportunity to lead their families and communities in faith and service. Put your faith into action and join us. We meet on the second Tuesday of each month beginning with dinner and fellowship at 6:30 p.m.
We are Guided by 4 Pillars
- Charity – Our Catholic faith teaches us to “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Members of the Knights of Columbus show love and compassion by helping those in need – a call we answer every day.
- Unity – None of us are as good as all of us! We accomplish far more together than any of us could individually. Count on the support and encouragement of your brother Knights to make life better in your parish and community.
- Fraternity – Venerable Michael J. McGivney founded the KCs in 1882 to provide assistance to the widows and children when the family breadwinner died – often prematurely. The Order’s top-rated insurance program and good works illustrate how Catholics serve each other in fraternity and mercy.
- Patriotism – We are proud of our devotion to God and country, and remind the world that Catholics support their nations and are amongst the greatest citizens.
