Knights of Columbus

The Knights of Columbus is the leading Catholic fraternal charitable and service organization.  Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and Patriotism have been our Order's principles since our founding in 1882.  With more than 14,000 councils and over 1.8 million knights, during the past decade alone, the Knights of Columbus have donated more than $1.367 billion to charity and provided nearly 640 million hours of volunteer service in support of charitable initiatives.

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, supporting St. Andrew by the Bay Church, enhancing your own faith, while protecting and enhancing your family life.  This booklet offers an overview of what it means to be a member of the Knights of Columbus.  

St. Andrew by the Bay Knights of Columbus Council #11552 was established on April 20, 1995.  Imagine being part of an organization that fills your heart and your mind with the joy of giving to others and the feeling that comes with making a difference.  To join or obtain more information, visit or contact Grand Knight Jeremy Shutt at
