Joining the Knights is easy. The only requirements are that you be 18-years-old and a practicing Catholic. Just fill out a form that can be given to you by any Knight. Once your application has been approved by Council 10567, you will go through the First Degree initiation and you can then start attending meetings and participating in Knights activities. For more information, you can e-mail one of our officers directly from our Meet the Officers page.
There is no cost associated with joining St. Patrick Knights of Columbus Council 10567. Any initiation fees required by the Supreme Council are paid for by Council 10567. Once a person becomes a Knight, dues are just $24 per year. Dues are not required for Knights 65-years-old or older, students or persons in the military. Joining the Knights of Columbus is a bargain at any price.
No. Only the various degree initiations are done in private and that is done only to preserve the meaning of those ceremonies. All Knights of Columbus activities and programs are done in full view of the public.
