All the good works we do are informed by our four core principles:Charity – Our Catholic faith teaches us to “Love thy neighbor as thyself.” Knights recognize that our mission, and our faith in God, compels us to action. There is no better way to experience love and compassion than by helping those in need, a call we answer every day.Unity – None of us is as good as all of us. Members of the Knights of Columbus all know that together we can accomplish far more than any of us could individually. So we stick together… we support one another.Fraternity – The Order’s top-rated insurance program continues to provide assistance to those left behind when the family breadwinner dies, as do individual Knights, who last year gave more than 10 million hours of their time to assist sick and/or disabled members and their families.Patriotism – Members of the Knights of Columbus are patriotic citizens. We are proud of our devotion to God and country, and believe in standing up for both. Whether it’s in public or private, the Knights remind the world that Catholics support their nations and are amongst the greatest citizens.
