We believe all life is precious, including the life of an unborn infant. In 2005 there were 1,206,200 lives lost to abortions in the United States alone. In 2008 there were 1,212,230. The Knights of Columbus help support ‘Right to Life” groups and ‘Unplanned Pregnancy’ centers by providing funding for Ultra-sound Equipment to hopefully show the expectant mother that she has another life within her.
We support men and women who devote their lives to God and the Catholic faith. The knights offer assistance to postulates in the form of scholarships to assist with the cost of education. Men and women who are committing their lives to spiritual service often give up all of their possessions and need our help.
