Become a Knight

What are the Knights?

The Knights of Columbus are a Catholic Fraternal Benefit Society founded by Blessed Father Michael J. McGivney to help bring Catholic men together in support of one another, to protect Catholic families, and to help Catholic men put their faith into action. 

Why Join?


When you join the Knights of Columbus, you become a member of an international fraternity of over two million Catholic men who are striving to put their faith into action. 

Locally, in Lynn, you join a council of over 500 members with an 125 year history. We provide social fraternal events ranging from dinners, cookouts, dart leagues, to members nights at the hall. We also run charitable events.


Joining the Knights helps enable you and your family to live charitable lives and put the teachings of Christ into practice.  

Locally the Lynn Knights financially support our Catholic Parishes, My Brothers Table, and other local charities. We also award over $40,000 in scholarships every year. Our local programs have included children's Christmas parties, basketball competitions, and so much more. 

Family & Parish

A key mission of the Knights of Columbus is to serve our families and our parishes. A good Knights Council does not pull members away from their families and their parish. Rather we strive to assist our priests who minister to our parishes, and we strive to help men build up the domestic church in their own family.  

We run various events for local children and families.


Since the founding of the Knights of Columbus, insurance programs have been a vital part of its mission to serve and protect its members and their families. However, purchasing insurance is not a requirement for joining the Knights of Columbus.
