Knights of Columbus
Who We Are:
The Knights of Columbus is the world’s largest Catholic mens fraternal service organization. Reverend Michael J. McGivney founded K of C in 1882 in New Haven, Connecticut. It is named in honor of Christopher Columbus and our organization’s patron is Our Lady of Guadalupe.
All Knights of Columbus are dedicated to the common ideals of Columbianism: Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and Patriotism.
