What is The Knights of Columbus?

  • The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic men's fraternal benefit society that
  • was formed to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid
  • and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their
  • families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and
  • their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare,
  • war relief and public relief works.
  • The history of the Order shows how the foresight of Father Michael J.
  • McGivney, whose cause for sainthood is being investigated by the Vatican,
  • brought about what has become the world's foremost Catholic fraternal benefit
  • society. The Order has helped families obtain economic security and stability
  • through its life insurance, annuity and long-term care programs, and has
  • contributed time and energy worldwide to service in communities.
  • The Knights of Columbus has grown from several members in one council to more
  • than 12,000 councils and 1.7 million members throughout the United States,
  • Canada, the Philippines, Mexico, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Panama,
  • the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, Guatemala, Guam, Saipan and Poland.
