Being a Knight means:
- Being involved with your community
- Supporting your local Catholic Church
- Enhancing your own faith
- Protecting and enhancing your family life.
The Knights of Columbus is fortified by its past and driven by its goals for the future. Knights concentrate on five service areas – faith, community, family, youth and fellowship to make a difference.
FAITH: As Knights, 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 postulates.
COMMUNITY: By actively and financially supporting Special Olympics, by leading the charge in pro-life, or by safeguarding the environment, Knights all over the world have helped countless communities prosper.
FAMILY: As fathers and husbands, serving our families is not only part of what we do; it is part of who we are. Most importantly, as Knights, we are able to provide assistance and support to each other and our families whenever needed.
YOUTH: Helping today’s youth become tomorrow’s leaders is also a huge focus of the Order. Through many sponsored activities, our Council assists youth in building a strong sense of civic and religious responsibility.
FELLOWSHIP: To be a Knight means to believe in each other as we believe in ourselves; realizing that by creating strong, social and supportive local councils, we help create a stronger Order worldwide and ensure an even stronger future for our Church and our Order.
