The St. Rose of Lima Knights of Columbus meet regularly on the 1st Sunday of each month at 7:30 PM in Mitchell Hall. 

Who are the Knights?
The Knights of Columbus were founded by Father Michael J. McGivney, Curate at St. Mary's parish in New Haven, Conn. and were chartered in 1882.

As the priest explained to a small group of men at a meeting in the basement of St. Mary's Church in 1881, his purpose in calling them together was manifold: to help Catholic men remain steadfast in their faith through mutual encouragement; to promote closer ties of fraternity among them and to set up an elementary system of insurance
so that the widows and children of members in the group who might die would not find themselves in dire financial straits.

What the Order stands for today.

By their deeds shall you know them. The Knights of Columbus is very much a grass roots organization. The international body does not dictate the charitable programs and activities of local councils, rather, local councils develop the programs they believe will best serve the needs of their communities. Those needs are met in six core areas: Church, Community, Council, Family, Youth and Pro Life.

Who can be a member?

Membership is open to any practical Catholic man who is not less than eighteen years of age on his last birthday. A practical catholic is one who lives up to the commandments of God and the precept of the Church.
