Knights of Columbus (K of C)

Knights of Columbus:

The Knights of Columbus are Catholic gentlemen committed to the exemplification of charity, unity, fraternity, patriotism, and defense of the priesthood.The Order is consecrated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, and the Knights are unequivocal in their loyalty to the Pope, the Vicar of Christ on Earth. They are firmly committed to the protection of human life, from conception until natural death, and to the preservation and defense of the family. It was on these bedrock principles that the Knights were founded over a century ago; they remain true to them today.

As a lay Catholic fraternity service organization, membership is open to all practical Catholic men of the age of eighteen and above, in communion with the Holy See. The term "practical Catholic" implies that a person accepts and abides by the commandments of God and the precepts and tenets of the Catholic Church. 

Meetings and Service

The Knights of Columbus do several annual service projects and activities throughout the year. Stay tuned for information about meeting times. Please contact koc@duq.edu for more information.
