Who can become a Knight?
Membership is open to all Catholic men 18 years of age or older. The only requirement is that they be a “Practicing Catholic” in communion with the Church, living up to the commandments of God and the precepts of the Church.

Why membership in the Knights?
Membership in the Knights provides opportunities for wholesome association and fellowship with companions committed to making our community a better place in the service of God and support of our local Catholic Church, community, and families.

What are the benefits of becoming a Knight?
Pride in being a part of the largest Catholic lay organization in the world. We are 1.8 million members strong throughout many countries the world over. Knights, and through them, their spouses and children, have the opportunity to obtain insurance in our member-owned top-ranked insurance program offering products focusing on the financial needs of members and their families; plus many more personal and family benefits.

What does it cost?
There is an annual fee of $36.00.

What is a Degree?
The Order is dedicated to the core principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and Patriotism. These correspond to the four degrees of membership, each degree exemplifying one principle. The First Degree is required for a candidate to become an official member.
