JOIN OUR BROTHERHOOD
If you are a practical Catholic man, age 18 or older, we welcome you to join the leading organization of Catholic Brothers. Being a Knight is more than camaraderie; it is being involved with your community; it is supporting your local Catholic Church, while enhancing your own faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life. Catholic men who join the Knights belong to a council, or local unit. Many 18 to 22 year olds first join the Knights of Columbus in a college council.
Within the Knights of Columbus there are several degrees, each providing the member valuable lessons. The First Degree teaches the lesson of charity, and upon completion he is considered a Knight of Columbus and can participate in all council activities. First Degree members are encouraged to attain the Second and Third Degrees, which teach the lessons of unity and fraternity. Upon taking the Third Degree, a member receives full honors of Knighthood and is “Knighted.” Privileges of Third Degree membership include the ability to serve as a local council officer, and admission to state and Supreme Council business meetings. First and Second Degree members can attend the state and Supreme Council meetings, but they are not allowed in the business sessions.
