Knights of Columbus (KofC)kofc_logo

An Organization Like No Other…

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 Council took on the name of Brunswick to represent all of the people in Northern Medina County including Hinckley, Medina, and Valley City.  We are guided not only by our belief in God and the Catholic Church, but by our belief in each other, and in ourselves.

The Brunswick Council of the Knights of Columbus meets the first Tuesday and an optional 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.

We are the Knights of Columbus. Believing that a man is defined by his actions as a follower of God, and as a leader in his community. Believing that a man is more than simply a man when he bears the title of “Knight.”
