Knights of Columbus

Who are the Knights of Columbus 

Knights are Catholic men, 18 years of age and older, who are committed to making their community a better place, while supporting their Church.   Knights share camaraderie with men who hold values similar to yours.  Knights are involved with your community; they support your local Catholic Church and its causes, while deepening their faith; and they believe in protecting and enhancing their family life.

The Knights of Columbus is an international Catholic lay organization with more than 1.7 million members in 13,000 councils located throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Philippines, Puerto Rico, Poland, and several other countries.

At St. Cecilia Catholic Church, members of the Knights of Columbus are part of the Immaculate Heart Council #5899.  The council is led by a Grand Knight, who is elected every two years to serve in this position.

Why Join the Knights

In today’s world, many Catholic men are looking to fulfill their desire to spend meaningful time with their family, to serve their community and their Church, and to grow in their faith.  Joining the Knights of Columbus provides these men and their families with volunteer opportunities and activities that accomplish these goals.
