From the State Deputy
The Knights of Columbus, a fraternal, benevolent society of Catholic men was founded in New Haven, Connecticut in 1882, by Father Michael J. McGivney and a small group of pioneering Catholics to provide much needed security for widows and orphans of Catholic parishioners. The order’s goal is to promote social and intellectual interchange, to protect and promote Catholic interests, and to foster a spirit of fraternity among citizens of all races and creeds. These Catholic men and their families are dedicated to promoting the concepts of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism. Today there are more than 1.8 million members in over 15,000 councils on three continents and numerous Island nations around the globe.
The first council formed in Kentucky was Council 390 in Louisville on December 7, 1898. The State Council was established in 1903 following the institution of Covington Council 702 and Lexington Council 762. Over the years the Knights of Columbus in Kentucky has grown dramatically and today stands at 100 councils with a membership in excess of 11,300.
If you are a practical Catholic man at least 18 years old, the Knights of Columbus may be for you. Contact us at the Kentucky State Council or the nearest local council in your area.
