Join Province 12 southwark

How to join us

Membership of the Knights of St Columba is open to all practicing Catholic Men over 16 years of age. Members join local units called ‘councils’, many of which are based at parish or deanery level.

New members take part in a brief admission ceremony; where the objects of the Order are explained, conducted either in the Council Chambers or at Mass in Church.

They also participate in monthly meetings.

Pope Benedict – emeritus – had appealed to the laity to assist in the mission of the Church by becoming more involved in the work of the parishes and our communities. Membership of the Knights of St Columba provides the opportunity to respond to our Holy Father’s appeal.
