GENERAL INFORMATION

The Knights of Columbus were founded by Father Michael J. McGivney, the pastor of St. Mary's in New Haven, CT.

The state of Connecticut officially chartered the order on March 29, 1882. Today, the Knights have over 1.8 million members, and we are the largest men's Catholic fraternal organization in the world.

We are founded on the principles of charity, unity and fraternity. As Knights, we are able to provide assistance and support to members and their families whenever needed. As fathers, sons and husbands, serving our families is not only part of what we do; it is part of who we are. To that end, Knights of Columbus Councils offer programs that strengthen family and marital bonds by holding numerous family focused events.

As Knights, our faith is our foundation. Dedicated to the Catholic Church's growth and her good works, we support religious outreach, promote vocations, and provide financial support for seminarians and postulates. This way, we help support our Church and strengthen our personal faith. As committed as we are to the Catholic Church, so are we to our communities. By actively and financially supporting many charities, by leading the charge in pro-life, or by safeguarding the environment, Knights of Columbus members all over the world have helped countless communities prosper.
