Did you know this about the IW Knights of Columbus?
Over the next several weeks we will review the growth of our Order. “Service and charity are at the heart of the Knights. Founded to meet the needs of immigrants, refugees and families suffering from the death of a breadwinner, the Knights began as a small service organization and has grown into a worldwide financial and charitable organization.”
IN SEARCH OF LIBERTY
The Order spearheads anti-defamation work in the U.S. and takes a stands for religious freedom in Mexico.
The Great Depression leads to a renewed sense of volunteer service - and Knights across the nation step up.
WAR AND PEACE
Following the end of World War II, the Order turns its attention to the growing threats of communism and fascism, which threaten communities and religious freedoms.
"ONE NATION UNDER GOD"
In 1954, the words "under God" are added to the U.S. Pledge of Allegiance completing an effort the Knights began three years earlier.
