The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic men’s service organization founded in 1882 by a Catholic priest in New Haven, Conn.
There are about 2 million members. Its principles are charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism. During the last decade, the Knights of Columbus has donated almost $2 billion to charity.
It’s also provided about 700 million hours of volunteer service in support of charitable initiatives.
Our local council, Lancaster, S.C. Council 10066, was formed 25 year ago by members of St. Catherine Catholic Church.
