Knights of Columbus

Who are the Knights of Columbus?

The Knights of Columbus were founded in 1882 and have 1.8 million members worldwide. It is a fraternal order of Catholic men dedicated to the ideals of Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism. The Knights serve the Church through charitable community works and a wide variety of activities and events to bolster St Michael’s strong sense of community as well as assist other ministries.


Membership is open to any practicing Catholic gentleman who is in union with the Holy See and who is at least 18 years of age.

The Knights are a great opportunity to get together with other men in the parish, form new friendships, share family experiences and deepen our faith. We volunteer our time and talents for the good of the parish as the Spirit moves us.

Your time commitment is totally voluntary.
