Why you should become a Knight

Into the Breach Official Trailer
Inspired by the Apostolic Exhortation for Catholic men written by Bishop Olmsted of Phoenix, the Knights of Columbus produced a video series which seeks to answer the question of what it means to be a man and how to live as a man in today’s world.

We are a band of brothers, a network of men in communities around the world dedicated to doing good in the service of God and our neighbor.

Membership in the Knights of Columbus is open to men 18 years of age or older who are practical (that is, practicing) Catholics in union with the Holy See. This means that an applicant or member accepts the teaching authority of the Catholic Church on matters of faith and morals, aspires to live in accord with the precepts of the Catholic Church, and is in good standing in the Catholic Church.

THESE KNIGHTS INSPIRE US

In the Knights of Columbus series “Everyday Heroes” we focus the spotlight on these remarkable Knights whose courage, faith and commitment to charity embody the mission of the Knights of Columbus. Please join us in this journey of hope and inspiration, and discover how the betterment of our world ultimately begins with the individual human heart.

2017 Intellectual Disabilities Drive

Knights Events Comments Off on 2017 Intellectual Disabilities Drive

Tootsie RollThe Campaign for People with Intellectual Disabilities

The Campaign for People with Intellectual Disabilities, also previously known as the Tootsie Roll Drive, is probably the Knights of Columbus’ best-known national fund-raiser. Unlike fundraising done by other organizations, 100% of the money raised through the Campaign for People with Intellectual Disabilities goes to help people with intellectual disabilities. The Knights do not use a hard sell approach to collect money; they merely stand (or sit) near the entrance to businesses wearing a red and yellow apron designating them as a K of C fundraiser. Most people know about the annual drive and the great work of the Knights of Columbus, and will donate without any solicitation. In return they receive a “thank you” from the Knight and an offer of a Tootsie Roll to those who donate.
