About Us

The Knights of Columbus is the world’s largest Catholic family fraternal service organization with 1.6 million members. It provides members and their families with volunteer opportunities in service to the Catholic Church, their communities, families and young people. Membership in the Knights of Columbus is open to practical Catholic men in union with the Holy See, who are not less than 18 years of age on their last birthday. A practical Catholic is one who lives up to the Commandments of God and the precepts of the Church. All Catholics of any tradition are welcomed to join.

Our Council is located at St. Bonaventure Catholic Church in Davie, FL – Broward County.
