Knights of Columbus | St. Patrick

What does it mean to be a Knight?

It means a life of faith in action, a life of boldness in brotherhood, a life worth living. Join two million Catholic men on a mission.

Service and charity are at the heart of the Knights. Founded to meet the needs of immigrants, refugees and families suffering from the death of a breadwinner, the Knights began as a small service organization and has grown into a worldwide financial and charitable organization.

Opening Council Prayer

Christ Jesus — the Way, the Truth and the Life —
Teach us to live the charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism required of us as Knights of Columbus.
During this meeting, guide us in our discussions so that we may thoroughly understand the matters in hand, judge them with knowledge and wisdom, and decide upon solutions that will truly give glory to our Father in heaven.

Founded on the principles of charity, unity and fraternity, the Knights of Columbus was established in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven, Conn., and a group of parishioners. Their intent? To bring financial aid and assistance to the sick, disabled and needy members and their families.

Today, Father McGivney is being considered for sainthood.
