A message on what it means to be a Knight by our State Chaplain, 

Most Reverend Bishop Malloy.

Who We Are

The Braidwood Knights of Columbus is a Catholic lay organization, administered and supported by Catholic laymen, as a fraternal society (Order) seeking for each member (Brother Knight) to more firmly be footed in faith, hope, and charity, and to further their own growth in the knowledge of their Catholic faith and thereby be able witnesses of the mystery of salvation.

Charity is the first principle of the Knights of Columbus. We are men of faith and men of action. Knights volunteer countless hours of their time to charitable causes. We undertake these acts of charity because we see those in need through the eyes of faith. Moreover, in the Knights of Columbus, we approach these acts of charity together. Pope Benedict XVI called this the “practice of love...as a community".
