Why Join the Knights of Columbus

Since its beginnings the organization has promoted the principles of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism.

Charity is the first principle of the Knights of Columbus. Knights are men who get things done. We volunteer our time to serve St. Mary and our communities.

Unity and Fraternity are the second and third principles of the Knights of Columbus. The Knights of Columbus was founded so that men could work together to serve their parishes and communities, protect the well being of their Catholic families, and support each other in faith and in many other ways along life's journey. The Knights of Columbus offers its members the opportunity to grow in their faith through living the example of a charity that evangelizes and personifies what it means to be a Catholic gentleman through the practicing of good works.

The Knights of Columbus contributes to the good of society by fostering authentic patriotism, which does not mean that we love our country regardless of right or wrong. Rather, it means that we love our country so much that we want it to embrace what is true and good. We want our country to be a place where human dignity is recognized and respected from conception until natural death, a place where religious freedom is robustly fostered, not just tolerated. Out of love for country we are vigilant, lest our freedoms be unduly curtailed for political reasons.

We likewise work to defend marriage and the family because we recognize how these institutions strengthen civil society. This same love of country also prompts us to reach out to those in need and to welcome those who come to our shores seeking a better life, much as our ancestors did.

As a Knight, you and your family have exclusive access to our top quality insurance products. In fact, no insurer in North America is more highly rated than the Knights of Columbus. As an organization founded to protect the well being of Catholic families, we have continued to take that mission seriously for more than 130 years. Generations of Catholics have counted on the Knights of Columbus, and in an increasingly turbulent world, you can trust the Knights of Columbus to affordably and securely protect the future of your loved ones and to be there when you need us most.
