This past August, the DC Knights of Columbus were well represented at the 2023 Supreme Convention in Orlando, FL. The annual event brings together brother knights and their families from all around the world. Here are some highlights from the Convention!
“Pope Francis has said ‘every Christian is a missionary’. This must include all 2 million Knights of Columbus.”SUPREME KNIGHT PATRICK KELLY
Today, our mission is more urgent than ever.
We are men on a mission
Our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ leads us to action. We lead with faith; then are driven to charity. Cor is a regular gathering of Catholic men designed to help men grow, live and boldly share their faith. All councils are encouraged to make this program a priority and invite all men of your parish to join.
We are growing
Over the past year, we have grown to more than 2,084,000 members around the world, spread across 16,672 councils. Members donated more than $185 million and 49.9 million hours of volunteer service to worthy causes in our last fraternal year.
Leaders for life
Knights stand firmly in support of life. We stand tall behind what we’ve done in support of the movement. There is much more to do.
We are Knights of the Eucharist
Recognizing the Real Presence of our Lord and Savior in the Holy Eucharist transforms lives. Now more than ever, Knights are needed to point the way to Christ. In a world beset by division, anxiety, vice and addictions, people need faith, hope and
charity—each one of us needs a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Financially strong, committed to charity
Financial solutions are among the original signs of our charity. This includes access to insurance, investments and philanthropic products and services for eligible members, individuals and institutions.
