Welcome to the St. Wenceslaus Knights of Columbus Web Site!
Our fraternal organization is founded on the principles of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism.
Those are summarized on the back of our membership form:
You will share in the sense of pride in knowing that their Order is second to none in support of Our Holy Father,
our Bishops and Priests; in working for our fellow man,
especially those most in need
and in binding together to preserve traditional values in the face of attacks against the family and innocent human life.
Our Council has over 450 parish men, belonging to the world's largest Catholic fraternal organization with over 1.6 million brother Knights and 12,000 Councils.
Simply put, our Council tries to be the "right hand" of the parish priest with service to the Church and the local community.

Why Join the Knights of Columbus?
Imagine being part of an organization that
fills your heart and your mind with the joy of giving to others
and the feeling that comes with making a difference.
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.
