This is the National Home Page for the Knights of Columbus. The Knights was formed thanks to the efforts of Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven, Connecticut and some of his parishioners in 1882. The Knights of Columbus is a fraternal benefit society and is true to its founding principles of charity, unity and fraternity.
The California State Council is the governing body for the Knights of Columbus in the jurisdiction (state) of California. There are over 600 Councils in California with over 74,000 members. The State Deputy is the chief executive officer for the State Council.
What we do
The Knights’ founder recognized that evangelization and charitable witness begin in the parish and depend on the laity. An article written by Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson on July 1, 2013.
From the moment of our founding in 1882, charity has been the first principle of the Knights of Columbus. We are Catholic men of faith and men of charitable action.
For many Knights, service to the Church and the Order is a family tradition uniting fathers, sons and grandsons.
A clear call to join the Knights of Columbus.
