Knights of Columbus

The Knights of Columbus was founded in 1882 by the Venerable Michael J. McGivney, a parish priest at St. Mary's Catholic Church in New Haven, CT.  The goal was to provide for widows and orphans of the parish.  Over the next 130 years, the order has grown to over 1.8 million members in over 15,000 councils.

We are a Catholic, Charitable, Fraternal Organization in service to the Church, youth, family and community.  Our founding principles are Charity, Unity, and Fraternity.  We support the school and the various church ministries, as well as organizations which provide services to the poor, homeless, handicapped, and distressed throughout the community.  Included are:  Morningstar School, St. Vincent de Paul Society, Pinellas Hope, PARC, Special Olympics, Foundations of Life Pregnancy Center, and Wounded Warrior Project. 

Every practicing Catholic man 18 years of age and older has something to contribute.  Even if you can only spare one or two hours a month.  Consider joining St. Raphael Council #10157.
