Who are the Knights?

The Knights of Columbus is the world’s largest Catholic family fraternal service organization with over 1.8 million members in nearly 15,000 councils.  It provides members and their families with volunteer opportunities in service to the Catholic Church, their communities, families and young people.  The Knights of Columbus is a powerful force for the Catholic faith.


The Knights of Columbus is a fraternal benefit society, which means we can provide financial security to members and their families, while turning premiums into charitable impact.


Why Join K of C?

As a Knight, you have the opportunity to strengthen our parish, give back to the community, grow in your faith and establish life-long bonds with men who are prayerful, honest, and compassionate about life issues and our faith. There are many other reasons to join.  A nice discussion of the benefits of joining the Knights of Columbus is provided on the Orange Diocese Chapter website at www.ockc.net/join-us/.

Membership in the Knights of Columbus is open to men 18 years of age and older who are practicing Catholics in union with the Holy See. This means that an applicant or member 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.
