Knights of Columbus

Contact: Grand Knight Pat Carroll,

The Knights of Columbus is the world's largest Catholic fraternal service organization, with more than 2 million members in 16,000 Councils worldwide. The order is dedicated to promoting the principles of charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism; their various programs allow Knights and their families to work together to aid their parish, the Church, the community, and each other. In 2022, Knights donated more than $154 million worldwide to charitable causes and provided 48 million hours of volunteer service.

The Knights also operate their own insurance company, benefiting its members and providing financial support to its many national and international philanthropic programs. In November 2015, the Knights of Columbus surpassed $100 billion of life insurance in force and enjoyed the highest rankings from rating organizations A. M. Best and Standard & Poor's.

St. Andrew Council #11275 celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2019 and has a notable history of service and achievement since its founding in 1994. Council #11275 has been named one of the Ohio State Council's "Top Ten" from among the state's 375+ councils on five occasions (1994, 2009, 2011, 2013, and 2019) and has been recognized many times by its Supreme Council as a "Star Council" recipient, for outstanding achievement in recruitment and programming (1994, 2005, 2007, 2009 - 2013 and 2020).

Council activities include providing Christmas grocery baskets to inner-city families, raising funds for developmentally disabled citizens, and supporting Right-to-Life efforts. The Knights also support local, national and international causes, including those impacted by the train derailment in East Palestine and the war in Ukraine. The Knights also sponsor many events for the Parish community, such as pancake breakfasts, the parish's annual Christmas tree sale and Easter egg hunt, and many other services and social activities.

Any man 18 years or older and a practical Catholic is eligible for membership in the Knights - please consider joining us in faith, fellowship, and service! Men interested in joining the Knights should contact St. Andrew Council directly at or join the Knights online at
