What Is The Knights of Columbus?

As a member of the Knights of Columbus you and your family enjoy many benefits, including 12 free issues annually of the Columbia magazine, the world’s largest Catholic family magazine, eligibility to join the Knights of Columbus top-ranked life insurance program, and many more family and personal benefits.

Holy Spirit Council #13486 donates funds to many worthy, local causes. We also provide time and talent in ways in which no other group can – often working side by side with those we serve. Few organizations give back to their community. Fewer still support the Church. We believe that, in order to have a strong and prosperous community, there must be an equally strong foundation of faith and character.


Membership in the Knights of Columbus is open to practicing Catholic men in union with the Holy See, who are at least 18 years old. A practicing Catholic is one who lives up to the Commandments of God and the precepts of the Church. Application blanks are available from any member of the Knights of Columbus.

In order to join our Council, please email either our Grand Knight or Membership Director..

 
Any Third Degree member in good standing, one year after the anniversary of his First Degree, is eligible for membership in the Fourth Degree. The primary purpose of the Fourth Degree is to foster the spirit of patriotism by promoting responsible citizenship and a love of and loyalty to the Knights’ respective countries through active membership in local Fourth Degree groups (called “assemblies”). Certain members of the Fourth Degree serve as honor guards at civic and religious functions, an activity that has brought worldwide recognition to the Knights of Columbus.

The Waterville Area Assembly #341 meets on the 3rd Monday of each month.
