Charity is the first principle of the Knights of Columbus

Knights are men who get things done. We volunteer our time to serve our parishes and our communities. And by working together, we were able to donate more than $1.4 Billion and 664 million volunteer hours to worthy causes in the past decade.

Support

A unique "band of brothers": with shared values and the support to live out our Catholic Faith more fully. Unity and Fraternity are the second and third principles of the Knight of Columbus. The Knights of Columbus offer its members the opportunity to grow in their faith through living the example of a charity that evangelizes and personifying what it means to be a Catholic gentlemen through the practicing of good works.
