From the moment of our founding in 1882, charity and unity have been the foremost principles of the Knights of Columbus.
Our charitable activities encompass an almost infinite variety of local, national, and international projects. Our own unique charities include Coats for Kids, support of local veterans groups, Catholic Schools, and men and women in the religious life. We also partner with international charities including Special Olympics, the Global Wheelchair Mission and Habitat for Humanity.
Through our Building the Domestic Church initiative, Knights and their families have greater opportunities to participate in a variety of activities that deepen their faith, promote the New Evangelization, and strengthen our Parishes.
“We are answering Pope Francis’ call to go to the peripheries,” Supreme Knight Carl Anderson said. “We can reach halfway around the globe to help those in need and we can reach to our neighbor next door. We do that every day. That makes us witnesses to the faith.”
If you’d like to be a part of an international organization of nearly 2 million Catholic men whose principal work involves helping others in need and practicing the Catholic faith, we’d like to meet you and invite you to join us.
