Knights of Columbus
The Knights of Columbus is a fraternal benefit society founded in 1882 in New Haven, Connecticut, by the Venerable Servant of God Father Michael J. McGivney. It is the world's largest lay Catholic organization, with more than 1.7 million members in the Americas, Europe, and Asia. The Knights support each other and their community, contributing millions of volunteer hours to charitable causes each year. The Knights work closely with Catholic bishops to protect innocent human life and traditional marriage. This Catholic men's group is open to any man over the age of 18 years. Meetings are held at the Knights of Columbus Hall at 205 North 8th Street every second Wednesday of each month at 8:00 pm.
