Knights of Columbus

The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic men’s fraternal organization.  It was founded by Michael J. McGivney in 1882 at St. Mary’s Parish in New Haven Connecticut.  Our guiding principles of Unity, Charity and Fraternity live on today supporting Catholic men in their faith, contributing our time and dollars to charity and most importantly protecting brothers and their families left behind with basic insurance programs.

What it means to be a Knight at Holy Name

All practicing Catholic men 18 years of age or older are eligible to join the Knights of Columbus.  Each month our council meets.  The only thing members are required to give is their time.  We all know that means different things to different people but through regular participation we expect that members contribute 2-3 times a year.  Should you feel that you have more time to devote to council activities you are welcome to join us once or twice month.

Council Meetings occur on the first Monday of every month at 7:00 pm Church Hall (Please enter from North doors).
