The Knights of Columbus is a fraternal Catholic Men’s Organization founded by Father Michael J. McGivney in 1882 to care for the families of deceased members. Our watchwords are Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism. The Brunswick Council of the Knights of Columbus meets the first and third Tuesday of each month at 7:30 in Lehner Center, with a social hour after regular meetings. The officers attend three meetings a month and are involved in most of the programs that the Knights are involved with, which translates to a minimum of six hours per month. To join the Knights of Columbus, one must be: over the age of 18; male; and a practicing Catholic as defined by the Church.
