Membership in the Knights of Columbus is open to practical Catholic men in union with the Holy Sea, who are at least 18 years old.

You can also contact Grand Knight Richard Bailey at 508-898-9330

As a member of the Knights of Columbus you and your family enjoy many benefits, including 12 free issues annually of the Columbia magazine, the world's largest Catholic family magazine, eligibility to join the Knights of Columbus top-ranked life insurance program, and many more family and personal benefits.

All meetings are at the Knights of Columbus Hall and promptly start at 7:30 PM

  1. An integral part of the world's largest and most dynamic Catholic fraternal organization, you will be united with 1.5 mission Brothers and their families in more than 9,000 local councils located in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Philippines, Central America, and the Caribbean.
  2. Your personal involvement as a Knight will provide opportunities in charity and fraternity, for service to the Church at the local, diocesan, and universal levels; to your communities; and to the less fortunate in our midst.
  3. Your active participation in council affairs: spiritual, fraternal, family, social, civic-oriented, athletic, and recreational - will serve as a school of leadership and enable you to develop qualities that enhance your strengths and abilities.
  4. You will enjoy a sense of "belonging" in an organization that shares your religious beliefs, brings together like minded men joined in a common cause, and offers the opportunity to develop and cement friendships for years to come.
  5. Your concerns for your family and for your retirement years can be addressed by the Order's lost-cost insurance program, conducted by Brother Knights for Brother Knights, and assure their security and your piece of mind.
  6. You share in the sense of pride all Knights feel in knowing that their Order is second to none in support of Our Holy Father, our Bishops and Priests; in working for our fellow man, especially those most in need; and in binding together to preserve traditional values in the face of attacks against the family and innocent human life.
