Who are the Knights?

The Knights of Columbus is the world's largest Catholic family fraternal service organization with 1.7 million members. It provides members and their families with volunteer opportunities in service to the Catholic Church, their communities, families and young people.

Membership Benefits

As a member of the Knights of Columbus you and your family enjoy many benefits, including 12 free issues annually of Columbia magazine, the world's largest Catholic family magazine, eligibility to join the Knights of Columbus top-ranked life insurance program, and many more family and personal benefits.

As a college council of the Knights of Columbus, we hold a special place within the Order. Unlike many other councils, we are composed majorly of men between the ages of 22 to 28. Men younger or older will not feel "out of place" since many of our activities are geared to appeal to all ages. The primary benefits of belonging to Council #1965 are:

Only Fraternity is the only one allowed on the campus of Mount St. Mary's.

Opportunity to meet Seminary & University students and develop lasting friendships.

Serve the campus community in a unique way.

(not to mention that we also know how to have a good time.)
