Catholic Men Becoming Knights

Catholic Men Become Knights

The Catechism of the Catholic Church states in its beginning pages that man is called to know, love and serve God.  God "calls man to seek him, to know him, and to love him with all his strength." Our Lord calls men who are scattered throughout our diocese divided by sin to find unity in His family, the Church.


Those of you who are searching for a way to grow closer to Christ and to deepen your love not only for God, but your own families and parish members are seeking a sign or direction to deepen our hearts. Could it be that the Knights of Columbus is a place to start? 

 

Charity (Love) – Unity (oneness) - Fraternity (brotherhood & friendship)-Devotion (dedication & love)

Our Catholic faith teaches us to “Love thy neighbor as thyself.” Members of the Knights of Columbus show love for their neighbors by conducting food drives, volunteering at Special Olympics, supporting mothers who choose life for their babies, and have various ways of bringing in funds for those in dire need. Knights recognize that our mission, and our faith in God, compels us to action. There is no better way to experience love and compassion than by helping those in need.


Members of the Knights of Columbus all know that together we can accomplish far more than any of us could individually. So we stick together and we support one another. As a Knight of Columbus, you can count on the support and encouragement of your brother Knights as you work to make life better in your parish, community and family. In the Knights of Columbus, we watch out for and take care of one another.


We are proud of our devotion to God and country, and believe in standing up for both. Whether it’s in public or private, the Knights remind the world that Catholics love our country and have an everlasting love for God.
