About Our Council

The Ascension Council works closely with the Parish providing funds for various projects, members being active participants in the parish.

Who are the Knights?

The Knights of Columbus was founded by Fr. Michael McGivney on Feb. 6, 1882, when the first members chose Columbus as their patron. Through the foresight of Fr. Michael McGivney, the Knights of Columbus has become the world's foremost Catholic fraternal benefit society. The Order has helped families obtain economic security and stability through its life insurance, annuity and long-term care programs, and has contributed time and energy worldwide to service in communities.

The Knights of Columbus has grown from several members in one council to more than 14,000 councils and 1.8 million members throughout the United States, Canada, the Philippines, Mexico, Poland, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Panama, the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, Cuba, Guatemala, Guam and Saipan.

Code of Chivalry

"Always Live Pure, Always Speak True, Always Right Wrong and above all, Always Follow Jesus Christ, the King. That is the very heart of true Christian Knighthood. Without Chivalry, Knighthood is dead. Every true Knight must live by the Code of Chivalry, those who do not are not Knights at all." By: Alfred Lord Tennyson
