WHO WE ARE

The Knights of Columbus is a non-profit Catholic Fraternal Mens organization dedicated to serving the Catholic Church and its community. The order was founded in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney in New Haven, Connecticut. Since that time the Knights of Columbus has spread throughout the world. The Knights of Columbus has one Supreme office which oversees all, however each community has its own council which aids and assists its community according to the bylaws of the order.

Here in Fairfax, our council has been serving our community for about 18 years. Our council currently has 60-70 members.
