LAST K of C #8074



The Knights of Columbus is the world's largest Catholic fraternal service organization with over 1.9 million members globally. Started in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney, The Knights of Columbus provides members and their families with volunteer opportunities in service to the Catholic Church, their communities, families and the youth. Our Knights have contributed over $185 million in donations and most importantly, over 76 million hours of service.

As Knights of Columbus, we are Catholic gentlemen committed to the exemplification of charity, unity, fraternity, patriotism, and defense of the priesthood.  Our Order is consecrated to the Blessed Virgin Mary and is unequivocal in its loyalty to the Pope, the Vicar of Christ on earth.  It is firmly committed to the protection of human life, from conception to natural death, and to the preservation and defense of the family.  It was on these bedrock principles that the Order was founded over a century ago and remains true to them today. 

To join our great organization of Catholic men, speak with a Knight.  We will be glad to answer any questions you may have and to assist you on your journey to Knighthood.  You will find our brother Knights working to fulfill the central mission of the Order: striving in charitable works; serving the Church and unified in following its teachings; supporting brother Knights in their temporal and spiritual needs; acting for the good of their country; and giving aid to widows, orphans, the sick and the poor.  This is Father McGivney's dream, echoing across the decades, and living today in the hearts of his brothers and all of those they touch.

We were also proud to help the intellectually disables by working closely with The Special Olympics, Charlotte Harbor School and St Marys'. K of C #8074 also provided scholarships to parochial school students and assisted with persecuted Christians. Our local chapter is also currently providing storm and disaster assitance to victims in the Bahamas. This year they also provided enough food for over 2,500 Thanksgiving dinners to the Charlotte County Homeless Coalition.
