Many thanks for coming to check out the work of the Knights of St Columba in our parish.
The Order of the
Knights of St Columba was founded a century ago as a fraternal association of
Catholic gentlemen, dedicated to the work of the Lay Apostolate and the virtues
of Unity, Charity and Fraternity. It exists to support the mission of the
Catholic Church following the Social Teachings of the Catholic Church. The
Knights of St Columba constantly participate in activities for the betterment
of the community at large. In the UK, members of the Order diligently work for
the Moral and Social Welfare of this country and in particular to help young
people develop in the likeness of Christ.
