The Knights of Columbus is the largest Catholic lay organization in the world, with over 2 million members in 17 countries.
We strive to live our principles of Charity, Unity, Brotherly Love and Patriotism by supporting our pastors and the Church, defending our Faith and life in all its stages, marriage, and the family, and protecting our Catholic families through our insurance program. Through our many Faith in Action programs, our members provide support to the community at large.
For example, we provide winter coats for children in need (Coats for Kids); we help to feed families in need (Food for Families). We support Pro – Life in many ways, for example, we started the March for Life in Victoria, and many Knights are active participants every year; we provide Ultrasound machines to pregnancy crisis clinics. Our Catholic Information Services (CIS) provides many resources for free to parishes on many topics of our Faith. We provide enrichment to our members (and anyone interested in participating) through programs like “Into the Breach”. We encourage all Catholic men 18 and older to join us and help us to keep families in Church.
