The Knights of St Columba are an Order of Catholic Laymen dedicated to the Service of the Church and fellow man.
The Organisation, which is non-political and essentially democratic, exists to support the mission of the Catholic Church and at the same time to work for the spiritual and material good of its members and their families.
In accordance with the Social Teachings of the Catholic Church, members will diligently work for the Moral and Social Welfare of our Country and in particular to help young people develop in the likeness of Christ.
Members of the Order will strive to achieve these aims through the fundamental virtues of Charity, Unity and Fraternity.
The K.S.C. is not a secret society; there are no passwords, handshakes, etc.
The Order is completely open and potential members may attend meetings. Admission ceremonies often take place in Church during Mass.
