Knights of Columbus Fraternal Officer Training

Attract with Fraternal Programs - And Build a Stronger Council!


Conducting charitable outreach projects provides an attractive vehicle to put your faith into action. What programs are attracting members in your council to assist, and what programs will attract new members to join? Council's need to hold warm, welcoming and inclusive programs that are family-friendly and provide faith-filled opportunities for your parish and community.

In this 1-hour presentation, we’ll cover ways for your council to make a difference by being frateral in leadership and conducting fraternal programs:

  • Foundational Programs for your Council

  • Building a Faith-filled family-friendly Council atmosphere

  • Bridging Fraternal Years with Fraternal Family Programs

The Knights of Columbus was founded by Venerable Servant of God Father Michael McGivney, a New Haven parish priest, in 1882. The organization was formed to provide charitable outreach and care for the financial well being of Catholic families, focusing on the protection of widows and orphans, and on strengthening the faith of its members. It has grown into the world’s largest lay Catholic organization, with more than 1.9 million members throughout North and Central America, the Philippines, the Caribbean and Europe. The enormous force for good of the nearly 15,000 Knights of Columbus councils donated more than $1.5 billion and 682 million hours of service over the last decade to various charitable causes.
