The Knights of Columbus

The Knights of Columbus is a worldwide Catholic men’s organization that was established in 1882 by Blessed Michael J. McGivney in New Haven, Connecticut.  The founding Principles of the Knights are: Charity, Unity, Fraternalism and Patriotism. The basic working units of the Knights of Columbus are done at the local Council level.  The activities of the Knights here at St Katharine of Siena Council are to support our priests, parish and community.  This parish ministry is a perfect way to develop comradery with other Catholic men in your parish, socially, in prayer, works of charity, and knowledge of your faith.
