As a practicing catholic man at least 18 years of age, the Knights of Columbus may be just what you’ve been looking for. As a fraternal organization, we offer catholic men the opportunity for fellowship with other catholic men who share the same beliefs and Christian values. By joining our local council, you can truly put your Faith in Action.
“In order for us to be able to love, we need to have faith, because faith is love in action and love in action is service. In order for us to be able to love, we have to see and touch. Faith in action through prayer, faith in action through service: each is the same thing, the same love, the same compassion.” ~ Mother TeresaMother Teresa (2016). “No Greater Love, Commemorative Edition”, p.32, New World Library
Founded on the principles of charity, unity, and fraternity, the Knights of Columbus was established in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven, Conn., and a group of parishioners. Their intent was to bring financial aid and assistance to the sick, disabled, and needy members and their families. This mission is at the heart of what we do as a local council, even today.
