Building a better world one council at a time!

Every day, Knights all over the world are given opportunities to make a difference, whether through community services, raising money or prayer. We celebrate each and every Knight for his strength, him compassion and his dedication to building a better world.

 

 

 

 

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.

 

How to find a Council?

Contact your local parish office. Often your parish will have its own local council. If not, your parish priest or parish office should be aware of the nearest council in the area.

Contact your campus minister on your college or university campus.

Look in the Yellow Pages. Local Knights of Columbus councils are normally listed under the "Clubs and Organizations" section in the phone book listings.

Ask a friend in the Knights for help.

Call the State Council at (506) 739-5810 or by E-mail: cdeckofc@nb.sympatico.ca
