Living according to the principles of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism, Knights work in local parishes and internationally to make the world a better place each day.
Like any other organizations, the Knights of Columbus has membership to offer to 18 year old practical Catholic men.
Candidates who joins will do so in a local unit, called "Council". Most councils are based in one Catholic parish. The candidate takes part in Welcoming Ceremonies that will explain the Knights of Columbus’ four principles: Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism.
Members along with their wives and children can help their council when they organize effective programs that will help their Church, Communities, Youth, Parish Priests, and Families. Other programs will help to create awareness in Pro-life activities, Euthanasia and abortion.
While our many programs are in place to help others, each member can find an appropriate one where they will thrive in doing along with their family or with other Knights of Columbus members.
A member is considered a "Knight" after taking his Welcoming Ceremony, but he is encouraged to advance through his Formation Ceremony and Knighthood Ceremony and on to the Patriotic Ceremony, whose members promote the virtue of patriotism by serving in honour guards, colour corps and promoting respect and defence for our country and the flag.
