Founded in 1882 and boasting nearly 2 million members across 15,000 councils, the Knights of Columbus boasts an impressive history. Our motto, “In service to One, in service to all” truly sums up our calling. On a practical level, we’re a group of men that selflessly supports the Church in Her parishes and organizations. From our annual “Tootsie Roll” drive in support of the intellectually disabled, through helping our parishes at their Lenten events, to ensuring that disabled vets make it to Mass at the VA Hospital – the Knights are there, serving right here in our community.

However, it’s not all work and no play! The Knights of Columbus enjoy a variety of social events. Bocce Parties, BBQs, an annual Christmas party, and other gatherings. A wide swath of personal and professional interests are represented in the group. Click here to view a list of our social events.
Membership in the Knights is open to practical Catholic men age 18 and above. If the opportunity to help out and give back to our local parishes and community appeals to you, we invite you to contact us to learn more. Click here to contact us.
We look forward to speaking to you!
