We are Knights of Columbus

We are the largest Catholic lay organization in the world, with almost 2 million men and over 16,000 councils worldwide.

We are Catholic men, 18 years and older, who live up to the Commandments of God and the precepts of the Catholic Church.

We are dedicated to the principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and Patriotism.

We have been praised by Popes, Presidents, and world leaders for our support of the Catholic Church, our programs, our civic involvement, and for our charitable aid.

We are Marquette 1437

The Knights of Columbus started in 1882, and Marquette Council was founded in 1909.

We are Catholic men who primarily reside in the New Orleans Metropolitan area, including St. Tammany, Jefferson, Orleans, and St. Bernard Parish.

We have been recognized by our Supreme Council and State Council for our charitable work and service.

Our Council Home is on the parade route.

Named #1 Council in Louisiana.
