Knights of Columbus are catholic men, 18 years or older. Over a century ago, Father J McGiven, a young parish priest inspired men of his parish to organize the first council of the Knights of Columbus; the objective was to help the church, families and their community.
The credo of The Knights of Columbus is Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and Patriotism. These men are firmly committed to the protection of human life, from conception to natural death, and to the defense and preservation of family.
Knights of Columbus are a fraternal organization working to help our church, the disadvantaged, and the needy.
Holy Trinity Council 9990, was founded by 33 parish members on the 13th of February 1989; in the space of thirty plus years membership has grown from this small group to 100 or more.
Our council and similar councils strive to make our communities a better place to live.
If you are catholic, 18 or older, and attending church on a regular basis you meet the criteria of joining us and welcome to apply for membership. Our home page has a link to becoming a member. Another possibility is sign up on line from the Knights of Columbus web site.
