The four core principles of the Knights of Columbus are Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism.
The Knights of Columbus is an organization of nearly 2 million Catholic men and their families throughout the world, united in service to our Catholic Church, our communities, parishes, schools, neighborhoods and the many in need across the world.
A Knight stands with his brothers in Christ to offer mutual support in good times and bad, and builds a better world by putting into practice the Order’s principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism.
The Knights of Columbus is the world’s largest Catholic fraternal service organization. Founded by the Venerable Father Michael J. McGivney in New Haven, Connecticut, in 1882, it was named in honor of the mariner Christopher Columbus. It provided services to low-income immigrant Catholics and has since evolved into a fraternal benefit society dedicated to providing charitable services, promoting Catholic education and actively defending Catholicism.
Some of the activites of the Knights of Columbus include Blood Drives and support of Birth Choice, Micah’s Way, South County Outreach, Seminarians and the Parish Food Drive. For more information, please contact Knights of Columbus Coordinator at Parish Office 949.837.1090
