St. Robert Bellarmine Council 17887

Transform Your Life

Becoming a Knight affords you opportunities to support your parish, give back to your community, grow in your faith and gain exclusive access to our top-rated insurance program to protect your family. Knights are a band of brothers, a global network of "Practical Catholic Men" dedicated to unselfishly serving God, our church, and our neighbors.


Charity is the first principle of the Knights of Columbus. Knights are men who get things done. We volunteer our time to serve our parishes and our communities. And by working together, we were able to donate more than $1.4 billion and 664 million volunteer hours to worthy causes in the past decade.

  • Support the parish with its needs
  • Help meet the needs of those in the local community
  • Aid victims of natural disasters and other catastrophic events, local and worldwide
  • Provide scholarships to our local students



Unity and Fraternity

Unity and Fraternity are the second and third principles of the Knights of Columbus. The Knights of Columbus was founded so that men could work together to serve their parishes and communities, protect the well being of their Catholic families, and support each other in faith along life’s journey. The Knights of Columbus offers its members the opportunity to grow in their faith through living the example of a charity that evangelizes and personifies what it means to be a Catholic gentleman.


  • A unique “band of brothers”
  • Shared values and the support to live out our Catholic faith more fully
  • The ability for our network to accomplish things together that we could not accomplish alone
  • Exclusive access to our top-rated life insurance products, available only to members and their families
  • Your insurance agent is a Knight dedicated to helping his brother Knights protect their families

Become a Knight

Men are sponsored into the Knights of Columbus by a current Knight, often someone they know from their parish or from a community event.

If you do not have a member contact, Council 17887’s Membership Director can provide you with any information you need, answer your questions, introduce you to a qualified sponsor, and prepare you for the admission into the Knights of Columbus.


Fill out the form and submit it to our Membership Director.  If you do not have a sponsor, leave that field blank and our Membership Director will contact you.
