The Knights of Columbus ( is the world's largest Catholic fraternal service

organization. Founded in the United States in 1882 by Father Michael McGivney in

Connecticut, it is named in honor of Christopher Columbus.


There are more than 1.8 million members in 15,000 councils, with nearly 200 councils on

college campuses.


Membership is limited to men aged 18 or older.


Councils have been chartered in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, Guatemala, Panama, Dominican Republic, the Philippines, Guam, Spain, Japan, Cuba, and most recently in Poland. The Knights' official junior

organization, the Columbian Squires, has over 5,000 Circles. All the Order's ceremonials and business meetings are restricted to members, though all other events are open to the public.


In the 2009 fraternal year, the Order gave over US$151 million directly to charity (over $1.367 billion in charitable contributions in the last 10 years) and performed over 69 million man hours of voluntary service. Over 413,000 pints of blood were collected. For their support for the Church and local communities, as well as for their philanthropic efforts, the Order often refers to itself as the "strong right arm of the Church." The Order's insurance program has more than $70 billion of life insurance policies in force, backed up by $14 billion in assets, and holds the highest insurance ratings given by A. M. Best, Standard & Poor's, and the Insurance Marketplace Standards Association.


The Our Lady Queen of Peace Council, #3426 has over 200 registered members. Many of these members work in unison to raise charitable funds which are used to give back to the community in the form of high school and college scholarships, youth athletic organization sponsorships (MYAA & MRPGS), Special Citizens Drive and Kids In Need (K.I.N).
