Our Faith in Action
Human life is sacred and invaluable at every moment of existence, including the initial phase which precedes birth. All human beings, from their mother's womb, belong to God. The Knights of Columbus is one of the strongest pro-life groups in the United States supporting pro-life activities both financially and legislatively.
The Knights of Columbus promotes a vision of religious liberty. As both Catholics and Americans, we celebrate the essential relationship shared between religion and liberty, a relationship that has uniquely defined our country's identity.
