Did You Know?
The Knights of Columbus is the world’s largest Catholic service organization. It was founded in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney.
Today they have over 1.8 million members in 15,000 councils around the globe. The first principle of the Knights of Columbus is charity. In
2011 alone (the latest year for which figures are available), charitable contributions by the Knights reached over $154 million and they
volunteered more than 70 million service hours to charitable causes. That year, there were 418,000 blood donations made by Knights. From
international charitable partnerships such as Special Olympics, Global Wheelchair Mission and Habitat for Humanity to their own Food for
Families and to purely local charities, these are men who make a real difference. And you may have thought they only wore funny chapeaux
and sported swords!
