The Knights of Columbus organization began in 1882 by Father Michael McGivney and grew tremendously at the start of the 20th century with the bedrock mission of charity, unity, and fraternity. Over the years, the Knights have maintained and strengthened their Catholic identity, taking a stand for religious freedom in opposition of threats of communism. To this day, Knights of Columbus remains an organization of Catholic men striving to live out their vocations well and serve their community as strong, faith-filled role models.

We have sponsored food drives, hosted events at parishes and in the community, and recognized families for their service to the church.
