The Knights are Catholic Men, 18 years of age and older, who are committed to making their community a better place, while supporting their Church.  Being a Knight is more than camaraderie; it is being involved with your community;it is supporting your local Catholic Church, while growing in your own faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life.
