Knights of Columbus 
Father McGivney’s original group has blossomed into an international society which has dedicated itself to the ideals of Columbianism: Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriot-ism. “Knights” signifies that the group embodies knightly ideals of spirituality and service to Church, country, and our fellow man. The Order’s Service Program has been revised to permit greater participation by the wives and children of members and also to enable greater identification on their part with the Order. The major sign of the Order’s active concern for the future of the Church and the spread of the Gospel, is the establishment of the Supreme Council Vocations Program. The Knights of Columbus have a long and enviable tradition of aid to Catholic education. Don’t just keep the faith – Spread it! As practical Catholics, Knights carry fraternity to the limits of love, unselfish service to their Church, community, country and council.
