The Knights of Columbus are a group of Catholic Men devoted to the values of Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and Patriotism.  Founded by Rev. Fr. Michael J. McGivney in 1882, today the Knights of Columbus are a dynamic service organization whose charism flows from our Catholic Faith.  Wherever the Church's mission takes her, there the Knights are called to be.

With more than 1.8 million members throughout the world, the Knights are organized into councils, assemblies, districts, chapters, states, and other organizational sections.

In the Diocese of San José in California, the San José Chapter of the Knights of Columbus includes 23 councils, 5 districts, and 5 assemblies throughout the Santa Clara Valley.
