Knights of Columbus

What We Do

From the moment of our founding in 1882, charity has been the first principle of the Knights of Columbus. We are men of faith and men of action.


In 2015, the Knights of Columbus set a new all-time record for the 17th consecutive year. Our charitable donations increased from 2014 by more than $1.5 million to a new total of $175,079,192. In addition, we achieved our highest level of charitable service in 2015, volunteering more than 73.5 million hours of service. The number of service hours contributed by Knights rose in 2015 by more than a million over the previous year’s total.


Our charitable activities encompass an almost infinite variety of local, national and international projects. From international charitable partnerships with Special Olympics, the Global Wheelchair Mission and Habitat for Humanity to our own Food for Families and Coats for Kids projects and other local charities, the opportunity to work together with fellow Knights and their families is virtually endless.


"We are answering Pope Francis’ call to go to the peripheries,” Supreme Knight Carl Anderson said. “We can reach half way around the globe to help those in need and we can reach to our neighbor next door. And we do that every day. That makes us witnesses to the faith."


If you’d like to be a part of an international organization of nearly 2 million Catholic men whose principal work involves helping others in need, we'd like to meet you and invite you to join us.

Participate in the Arizona Rosary
Celebration Poster Contest

Children grades K-8 are encouraged to participate in the Poster Contest learning more about Our Lady. The theme this year is: “Praying with Our Lady of Fatima.” The entries should be a drawing of the child and his/her family praying the Rosary before Our Lady of Fatima. Create a poster on paper (8-1/2 x 11”) using crayons, colored pencils, paint, and even embellishments. The BACK of the poster must have the Child’s Name (first and last), the School or Parish (include the city), Child’s grade and Parent’s name with an email and/or cell phone. Winners will be notified and be invited to a Pizza Party with Bishop Kicanas! Deadline for posters is Saturday, October 21, 2017. You can turn in your poster at, or mail it to, Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church; located at 8650 North Shannon Road, Tucson, AZ 85742. Join the people of our diocese to pray the Holy Rosary before the Blessed Sacrament, participate in a Blessing Procession, enjoy music, and listen to the words of the keynote speaker.
