Who are the Knights?

The Knights of Columbus is an Organization of Catholic Laymen; founded by a priest (Venerable  Michael J. McGivney) and run by Laymen requiring the guidance of a priest.

Membership in the Knights of Columbus is open to men 18 years of age or older who are practical Catholics (that is, practicing Catholics in union with the Holy See).  This means that an applicant or member accepts the teaching authority of the Catholic Church on matters of faith and morals, aspires to live in accord with the precepts of the Catholic Church, and is in good standing in the Catholic Church.
