KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS

Want to be a Knight?

The Knights of Columbus is the largest Catholic Fraternity in the world.  Here at St. Paul the Knights are a band of brothers, challenging one another to become the best version of themselves, pushing each other toward virtue, and to become fully alive  through acts of service to the Church and community.  

If you want to become a Knight at our college council of St. Paul, please call or text, Brian Schreiber, the Grand Knight (pictured on the right) at (316) 651-6789.  Or you can contact the office and they will connect you with the Knights in charge of admission and recruitment.  

Meetings:

1. The Knights of Columbus meet on the 3rd Sunday of the month

2. Meets begin at 8:00 p.m. (following the 7:00 p.m. Mass)

Who are the Knights?

The Knights of Columbus Council #14799 is a college council, comprised of young men who desire growth as a man of faith, a man of virtue, a man of love, and so become like Christ.  

History of the Knights:

From the moment of our founding in 1882, charity has been the first principle of the Knights of Columbus. We are men of faith and men of action. 

During 2012, in addition to raising and donating more than $167.5 million to charitable needs and projects, Knights volunteered more than 70 million hours of their time to charitable causes. These figures represent an increase of 6% and .1% respectively over 2011 figures. We undertake these acts of charity because we see those in need through the eyes of faith. Moreover, in the Knights of Columbus, we approach these acts of charity together. Pope Benedict XVI calls this the “practice of love...as a community.”
