Why Join?

It is likely that there is a local council near you. Applicants must apply to their local council located at a parish, college campus or in the community. Here are a number of ways to find a council.

  • Find A Council. This feature will give a list of councils in your area.
  • Contact your local parish office. Often your parish will have its own local council. If not, your parish priest or parish office should be aware of the nearest council in the area.
  • Contact your campus minister on your college or university campus.
  • Look in the Yellow Pages. Local Knights of Columbus councils are normally listed under the “Clubs and Organizations” section in the phone book listings.
  • Ask a friend in the Knights for help.
  • Call the Supreme Council at (203) 752-4044.
