Since 1882, membership in the Knights of Columbus has been open to men 18 years of age or older who are “practical” (that is, practicing) Catholics in union with the Holy See. Since that time, the Knights of Columbus has understood “practical catholic” to mean a Catholic who accepts the teaching authority of the Catholic Church on matters of faith and morals, aspires to live in accord with the precepts of the Catholic Church, and is in good standing in the Catholic Church.

Are you a Catholic gentleman age 18 or older looking to put your faith in action by serving the parish and community? Please consider taking the fist step by joining the Knights of Columbus as an online member where you will be equipped with the tools you need to be a better husband, father, and Catholic leader.
