I want to Join

How do I join the Knights of Columbus?

There are only two requirements for a man to join the Knights of Columbus:
  •  That you a practical Catholic as understood by the Church.
  • And that you be 18 years of age or older.
While dues-paying membership is only for Catholic men, most council programs are open to the member’s entire family, including social and family activities, scholarships, volunteer service programs and insurance benefits. Currently, our dues are a modest $40.00 per year.
Application blanks are available from any member of the Knights of Columbus. Every Knight is happy to propose eligible Catholic men for consideration as members. Or you can contact our Financial Sectrary, Ed Thuss at 519-246-1017.
Acceptance of your application depends upon a vote of the members of the Council in which he is making application.
You are considered a "Knight" after taking his First Degree, but are encouraged to advance through the Second and Third Degrees and on to the Fourth Degree, whose members promote the virtue of patriotism by serving in honor guards, color corps and promoting respect for country and the flag.
