In 1882, the Knights of Columbus was formed as a fraternal benefit society to render financial aid to members and their families. From the moment of our founding, charity has been the first principle of the Knights. We are men of faith and men of action. We undertake these acts of charity because we see those in need through the eyes of faith. Moreover, in the Knights of Columbus, we approach these acts of charity together. Pope Benedict XVI calls this the "practice of love...as a community." In 2010, the Order is still true to its founding principles of charity, unity and fraternity.
If you’d like to be a part of an international organization of 1.8 million Catholic men whose principal work involves helping others in need, we'd like to meet you and invite you to join us. For more information, please contact our Membership Director or any of our Officers or Members.
