Who can become a Knight?
Any male the age of eighteen (or older) and a practical Catholic in union with the Catholic Church.
Is it difficult to become a Knight?
No! It is not difficult to become a Knight, and you never stop learning how to be a true or better Knight in service to our Church, our Blessed Mother Mary, our country, and our community. We need several good men. Join the Knights of Columbus and become part of the strong right arm of our Church and parish.
Membership in the Knights of Columbus has been open to men 18 years of age or older, practicing Catholics in union with the Holy See. Since that time, the Knights of Columbus has understood “practical catholic” to mean a Catholic who accepts the teaching authority of the Catholic Church on matters of faith and morals, aspires to live in accord with the precepts of the Catholic Church, and is in good standing in the Catholic Church.
What are the Precepts of the Catholic Church?
The Precepts of the Catholic Church are laws binding upon the Catholic faithful and are prescribed by the Catechism of the Catholic Church. (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2041-2043)
- To keep holy the Lord’s Day by attending Mass on Sundays and holy days of obligation and to rest from servile labor.
- To confess your sins in the sacrament of Confession at least once a year during the Easter Season.
- To receive Holy Communion at least once a year during the Easter season.
- To observe the days of fast and abstinence according to the norms of the Church.
- To observe the marriage laws of the Church.
- To contribute to the needs of the Church.
