WELCOME TO THE KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS

St. Patrick's Parish Council 7689 

This site serves several purposes, the most important of which is to inform potential new members of what the Knights are all about and how to join. Welcome and enjoy your tour of these pages'

The second purpose of this site is to communicate with and provide transparency for our current members. As some of the information directed at our members is restricted, you may find some pages protected by a User ID and Password. If you are a member of St. Patrick's Knights and you forgot the password, you may contact the webmaster for this info. If you are not a member, kindly navigate to another page, or better yet, join us and you too can gain access to these pages.

Salt & Light TV recently aired a special on the Knights of Columbus. You can find it below. It is particularly informative of the works the Knights do. Don't forget to browse the rest of our site after you're done with the movie.

 

 

GENERAL INFORMATION

The Knights of Columbus were founded by Father Michael J. McGivney, the pastor of St. Mary's in New Haven, CT.    The state of Connecticut officially chartered the order on March 29, 1882.  Today, the Knights have over 1.8 million members, and we are the largest men's Catholic fraternal organization in the world.

We are founded on the principles of charity, unity and fraternity.   As Knights, we are able to provide assistance and support to members and their families whenever needed.  As fathers and husbands, serving our families is not only part of what we do; it is part of who we are. To that end, Knights of Columbus Councils offer programs that strengthen family and marital bonds by holding numerous family focused events, including the "Family of the Month" program that honors our outstanding families.

As Knights, our faith is our foundation. Dedicated to the Catholic Church’s growth and her good works, we support religious outreach, promote vocations, and provide financial support for seminarians and postulates. This way, we help support our Church and strengthen our personal faith. As committed as we are to the Catholic Church, so are we to our communities. By actively and financially supporting many charities, by leading the charge in pro-life, or by safeguarding the environment, Knights of Columbus members all over the world have helped countless communities prosper
