There is no better way to experience love and
compassion than by helping those in need,
a call Knights answer every day.


Knights banded together can accomplish more

we have each others’ back.


Members of the Knights of Columbus are proud
of our devotion to God and country,
and believe in standing up for both.

Lecture #3, September 2013

Unity may be wrong, but until someone offers a better explanation, this is why I believe “Unity” was adopted as the second principle of our Order. What we are as a nation is dependent upon our history. The world we live in is both different from and similar to the world of the 1880s. The…
