Welcome To James L. Martin Council 637 The Knights Of Columbus

  The Knights of Columbus is the world's largest Catholic fraternal service organization. Founded by Father Michael J. McGivney in New Haven, Connecticut, in 1882, it was named in honor of the mariner Christopher Columbus. Originally serving as a mutual benefit society to low-income immigrant Catholics, it developed into a fraternal benefit society dedicated to providing charitable services, promoting Catholic education and actively defending Roman Catholicism in various nations.

   The Knights of Columbus James L. Martin Council 637 started on January 19th, 1902 and continues the work of Father Michael J. McGivney.  Our Band Of Brothers do this by promoting Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and Patriotism.  Want to join or learn more contact us at
