St. Robert Bellarmine Council 17887

Frequently Asked Questions

As a Knight, you can choose the projects to be involved in within your own community. You will receive regular updates from your council regarding news and events in your area and be presented with frequent opportunities to work alongside brother Knights.  We are appreciative of any level of involvement you can offer.

Here are some additional benefits of becoming a Knight.

Membership in the Knights of Columbus is open to men 18 years of age or older who are practical (that is, practicing) Catholics in union with the Holy See.

A practical Catholic accepts the teaching authority of the Catholic Church on matters of faith and morals, aspires to live in accord with the precepts of the Catholic Church, and is in good standing in the Catholic Church.

Learn more about the definition of a practical catholic man in our post.
