WelcomeWelcome to the Knights of Columbus Council #7909 Website. We are a group of Roman Catholic men dedicated to the service of God through activities that support those in need. We look to help those most in need in our society; including the unborn, the elderly, the mentally challenged, and family members of those Knights who have gone before us. Members of the Knights of Columbus, or Brother Knights as we address ourselves, are dedicated to Charity, Fraternity, and Unity in the service of God. We believe that the talents given to us by our Lord are to be shared, and as such we use those talents to help others. If you are a Catholic Gentleman in good standing with the Holy See, we encourage you to become involved as a member of our fraternal order. Vivat Jesus!
About UsThe Knights was formed to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works.
The history of the Order shows how the foresight of Father Michael J. McGivney, whose cause for sainthood is being investigated by the Vatican, brought about what has become the world's foremost Catholic fraternal benefit society. The Order has helped families obtain economic security and stability through its life insurance, annuity and long-term care programs, and has contributed time and energy worldwide to service in communities.
