Founded in 1882, we are the largest lay organization in the Catholic Church with over 1.8 million members. The Order has been praised by popes, presidents and world leaders for its programs of evangelization and Catholic education, civic involvement and aid to those in need.Interested in being part of the Knights of Columbus?
