WHO WE ARE: We are the Knights of Columbus a Catholic Men’s Organization. We were founded in 1892 in New Haven Connecticut and we are now a global organization with 1.9 million members. We believe in:
CHARITY: The first and most important principal of being a Knight is Charity. Charitable work can include local food drives, support for refugees, and victims of natural disasters. We are Pro-Life donating over 1000 ultrasound machines to pregnancy crisis centers. Our annual Tootsie Roll Drive supports those with intellectual disabilities.

UNITY - We stand together in Unity and support not only one another but our churches, schools, and our community. We oppose racism and oppression. None of us is never as good as ALL of us - we stick together. Together we are One!
FRATENITY - We are a Fraternal Organization. Knights are considered brothers. Our order was founded by Fr. Michael J. McGivney in large part to provide assistance to widows and children when the family breadwinner died.
PATRIOTISIM - To reach the highest order - the 4th degree, candidates must perform an act of Patriotism. We support our Country, our Soldiers, our Veterans, our Fallen, and their families. Remembering our Fallen is our act of Patriotism. It is an honor to be able to bring this traveling memorial to you.
