Join us in making a difference

Imagine being part of an organization that fills your heart and your mind with the joy of giving to others and the feeling that comes with making a difference. Knights are Catholic men, 18 years of age and older, who are committed to making our community a better place, while supporting St Mary of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church.

Being a Knight is more than camaraderie, it is being involved with our community. It is supporting our local Catholic Church, while enhancing your own faith. It is about protecting and enhancing your family life.

As a Knight you can choose the projects with which you wish to be involved in within our own community. What is more, the Order is dedicated to family life and the many benefits it offers. From insurance to scholarships to service and social activities and programs, all are open to the whole family.

There are four degrees within the Knights of Columbus. Each degree ceremony imparts a lesson on the Order's core virtues of Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism.

We are a band of brothers, a network of men in communities around the world dedicated to doing good in the service of God and our neighbor.

Membership in the Knights of Columbus is open to men 18 years of age or older who are practical (that is, practicing) Catholics in union with the Holy See. This means that an applicant or member accepts the teaching authority of the Catholic Church on matters of faith and morals, aspires to live in accord with the precepts of the Catholic Church, and is in good standing in the Catholic Church.

If you would like to be a part of an organization of Catholic men whose principle work involves helping others in need, we'd like to meet you and invite you to join us. Please follow the steps below.

The Knights of Columbus also sponsors the Columbian Squires, a service and leadership training organization for Catholic young men ages 10 to 18 years old.
