Knights of Columbus

Our Mission

Together, we’re empowering Catholic men to live their faith at home, in their parish, at work and in their community.

Get Started

Knights come from every stage of life, in countless corners of the world. Join us as we celebrate real role models in a world that needs men who lead, serve, protect and defend.

• We have more than 16,000 councils headquartered in Catholic parishes around the world.
• Knights put their faith into action every day to make life better in their parishes and communities.
• We offer men the opportunity to grow in their faith while helping others and supporting the Church, and to become better Catholics, husbands and fathers.
• The Knights of Columbus annually contributes nearly $200 million to worthy charitable causes around the world, and our members donate nearly 100 million hours of their time.
• Our Leave No Neighbor Behind program provides direct outreach to those most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
• Our founder – Blessed Michael McGivney – has been beatified by the Church. People around the world seek his intercession through prayer.
• All practicing Catholic men 18 years or older are invited to join.
