Knights are Catholic men, 18 years of age and older, who are
committed to making their community a better place, while supporting
their Church. Being a Knight is more than camaraderie; it is being
involved with your community; it is supporting your local Catholic
Church, while enhancing your own faith; it is about protecting and
enhancing your family life.
