“The glory of the Knights of Columbus is not based on humanitarian works alone. Even more admirable has been your insistence upon the supremacy of God and your fidelity to the Vicar of Christ. In truth you can call yourself “brothers” because you call God your Father and have declared yourselves ready to do His will and serve His cause . . . the Knights of Columbus is an immense force for good.” Pope Paul VI
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.
The Order has helped families obtain economic security and
stability through its life insurance, annuity and long-term care
programs, and has contributed time and energy worldwide to
service in communities.through educational, charitable, religious,
social welfare and public relief works
The history of the Order shows how the foresight of Father
Michael J. McGivney, whose cause for sainthood is being
investigated by the Vatican, brought about what has become the
world's foremost Catholic fraternal benefit society.
