CODE OF CONDUCT
The Knights of Columbus' principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism serve as the basis of the Order's core values which are Integrity, Professionalism, Excellence, and Respect
THE WORLD NEEDS MORE KNIGHTS
Founded on the principles of charity, unity and fraternity, the Knights of Columbus was established in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary's Church in New Haven, Conn., and a group of parishioners. Their intent? To bring financial aid and assistance to the sick, disabled and needy members and their families.
Today, Father McGivney is being considered for sainthood.
A WITNESS FOR THE WORLD
As a Connecticut priest and founder of the Knights of Columbus, Blessed Michael McGivney is often viewed as an American phenomenon. However, in reality his vision has spread across the world, touching millions of lives.
