The Knights of Columbus was established in 1882 to provide a means by which Catholic men could support the Catholic Church, provide financial protection to protect their families, and engage in works of charity to benefit the less fortunate. Today, its nearly 1.8 million members make up the largest Catholic lay organization in the world, and last year Knights donated more than $150 million and volunteered 68 million hours of their time to charity.

What We Do:

• Charity to Those Less Fortunate
• Support the Catholic Church, Community & Country
• Financial Protection for Our Familes
• Local Events
• Catholic Mens Group

Knights are Catholic men, 18 years of age and older, who are committed to making their community a better place, while supporting their Church. Being a Knight is more than camaraderie; it is being involved with your community; it is supporting your local Catholic Church, while enhancing your own faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life.

The Knights of Columbus is the world’s largest Catholic fraternal service organization.  Founded by Father Michael J. McGivney in New Haven CT. in 1882.  The brotherhood was named in honor of Christopher Columbus.  There are four levels of the Knights fraternal organization: 

  1. First Degree or the “Admissions Degree”.
  2. Second Degree or the “Formation Degree”.
  3. Third Degree or the “Knighthood Degree”.
  4. Fourth Degree or the “Patriotic Degree”.

The Knights of Columbus Pius IX Council #4396 is a local council serving the Lansdale and Hatfield areas of Pennsylvania since April 24, 1957 making our community a better place, while supporting the church.
