The Knights of Columbus is the world's largest Catholic fraternal service organization. Founded in New Haven, Connecticut in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney, it is named in honor of Christopher Columbus.

What do we do?

Charity is the foremost principle of the Knights of Columbus. The Order gives more than $158 million directly to charity and performs over 70 million man hours in volunteer service each year. In the Diocese of Ogdensburg its over $325,000 and 105,000 volunteer hours.
A Knight's highest duty is to assist the widow or orphan of a fallen brother Knight.

The Knights of Columbus also offers a modern, professional insurance operation with more than $77 billion of life insurance policies in force. Products include permanent and term life insurance as well as annuities and long term care insurance. 

Why Join the Knights of Columbus?

Imagine being part of an organization that fills your heart and your mind with the joy of giving to others and the feeling that comes with making a difference.

Knights are Catholic men, 18 years of age and older, who are committed to making their community a better place, while supporting their Church. Being a Knight is more than camaraderie; it is being involved with your community; it is supporting your local Catholic Church, while enhancing your own faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life.
