We are a welcoming group of over 33,000 Catholic gentlemen, striving to be better Catholic gentlemen, husbands and fathers by serving others in works of Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism to fulfill the vision of our founder, the Venerable Fr. Michael J. McGivney, to aid one another to strengthen our faith, our families and our parishes in order to truly be the "Charity that Evangelizes" and the "Strong right arm of the Church."
We are Catholic men of faith and men of charitable action.
None of us is as good as all of us.
Venerable Michael J. McGivney founded the Knights of Columbus, in large part, to provide assistance to the widows and children left behind when the family breadwinner died – often prematurely.
We are proud of our devotion to God and country, and believe in standing up for both.
