The Knights of Columbus is a world wide fraternal organization of Catholic men. They currently have a membership of over one million men. The local council has over 100 members. The Knights of Columbus was founded in 1882 by Fr. Michael J McGivney. The basic principles of the Knights of Columbus are Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism. The greatest of these principles is Charity. There are four steps or degrees in the Knights of Columbus, and they are 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th degree. A member may progress as far as he wishes. There is an insurance and an annuity program available to members, if they wish to participate in it.

The Knights of Columbus sponsor several Parish activities such as breakfasts, Lenten Fish Fries, Mouse Races, to mention a few. All the proceeds from these activities go to support charitable organizations, local and national, and to help with the cost of some items needed by the Parish.[:]
