Knights of Columbus
Brainerd Council 1491
What Are the Knights of Columbus?
The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic, family, fraternal benefit society founded in 1882 by Venerable Michael McGivney, an American priest whose cause for sainthood is being considered by the Catholic Church.
We are an organization like no other - nearly 2 million members throughout the world united in service to our Catholic Church, our communities, parishes, schools, neighborhoods and the many in need, on your street or across the world.
Today we are looking for the next generation of Knights. Men of character and conviction who are driven by both faith and conscience to do truly meaningful works. And the rewards for members are numerous, from scholarships for our sons and daughters, to being able to participate in one of the leading insurance programs in the country.
But of the countless rewards Knighthood offers, perhaps the most inviting is this: The knowledge that, as a Knight, you can make a difference. Through fearless service. Through heartfelt perseverance. And, above all, through unfaltering fellowship.
