Knights of Columbus Founding
Principles and Core Values
Father Michael J. McGivney founded the Knights of Columbus on the principles of Charity, Unity,
Fraternity, and Patriotism. Today, these principles serve as the foundation of our Core Values:
Integrity: Firm adherence to ethics, honesty, and a moral code.
Professionalism: Promoting the highest standards in all we do.
Excellence: Leading by example and constantly striving to be the best.
Respect: Treating each other with the highest regard.
The Knights of Columbus is an organization deeply rooted in the Catholic faith that is based on Charity, Unity, Fraternity & Patriotism with many great benefits for both the member and all of his family. We are here to serve our parish, and the greater faith community. Brandon Hedinger is the Grand Knight at Pax Christi and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Knights of Columbus at Pax Christi host a 40 Cans for 40 Days Food Drive for the Catholic Action Center and God’s Pantry during Lent. The Knights of Columbus also organize drives throughout the year based on need; the most recent being the collection of items to aid in the clean up efforts for the flooding in Eastern Kentucky. The Knights of Columbus meet monthly and also coordinate our monthly First Friday Eucharistic Adoration.
