Become A Knight

When a man joins the Knights of Columbus, he has the opportunity to grow in his faith through its many programs and resources and through charitable service to his neighbor. In addition, a new Knight becomes part of a “band of brothers” that provides fraternal support and encouragement for one another and their families.

If a man is interested in helping those in need, serving his parish, growing in his faith or having access to top-rated insurance protection for his family, then the Knight of Columbus is the organization for him.

Membership growth is essential to the success of the Knights of Columbus. With the addition of each new member, the Order can better serve the Church, local communities and particularly those in need. But it isn’t just the Order that benefits from a new member. Each new Knight benefits also.

Since its beginnings the organization has promoted the principles of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism. Knights contribute to the welfare of their parishes and communities, and seek to help the needy through financial and volunteer support. In addition to the fellowship and faith development that Knights enjoy through their affiliation, the Knights offers a top-rated and competitively priced insurance program for the security of member families.

Membership in the Knights of Columbus is open to men 18 years of age or older who are practical (that is, practicing) Catholics in union with the Holy See. This means that an applicant or member accepts the teaching authority of the Catholic Church on matters of faith and morals, aspires to live in accord with the precepts of the Catholic Church, and is in good standing in the Catholic Church.
