Knights of Columbus

Knights' Banner

The Knights of Columbus represent the largest and arguably the most influential lay organization in the Catholic Church. With over 1,900,000 members in over 15000 councils throughout the United States, Mexico, Canada, the Caribbean, American Samoa, Guam, the Philippines, Poland, and South Korea. We are a fraternal organization with a family orientation. We have been called the "worker bees" of the Catholic Church.
