"I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another. This is how all will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
The Knights of Columbus are a fraternal order of Catholic men, 18 years or older and practicing Catholics, who render services to their members and families with volunteer opportunities in service to Saint Gregory the Great and the community at large. The Knights focus is four fold: Charity, Unity, Fraternity and patriotism.
The Knights of Columbus also offers the security of life insurance for its members.
As Knights, our faith is our foundation. Dedicated to the Catholic Church's growth and good works, we support religious outreach, promote vocations, and provide financial support for seminarians and postulants. This way, we help support our Church and strengthen our personal faith.
The importance of helping today's youth become tomorrow's leaders is also a huge focus of the Order. For this reason, many local councils sponsor Columbian Squires Circles, the Order's official youth organization. Additionally, Knights of Columbus assists all youth in building a strong sense of civic and religious responsibility.
As committed as we are to the Catholic Church, so are we to our communities. By actively and financially supporting Special Olympics, by leading the charge in creating a culture of life, and by safeguarding the environment, Knights of Columbus members all over the world have helped countless communities prosper.
To be a Knight means to believe in each other as we believe in ourselves, realizing that by creating social and supportive local councils, we help create a stronger Order worldwide.
Serving our families is not only part of what we do, it's part of who we are. To that end, we offer programs that help strengthen family and marital bonds by holding numerous family-focused events. Most importantly, as Knights, we are able to provide assistance and support to Knights and their families whenever we are needed.
As Knights, we stand up for those who cannot stand up for themselves. We are committed to living up to the challenge that our Holy Father has put before us, to "defend the moral truths necessary for a free and humane society, including the fundamental right to life of every human being."
