Arkansas State Council  -  We Are Knights

The Arkansas State Council of the Knights of Columbus is dedicated to serving the Diocese of Little Rock, our Most Reverend Bishop Anthony Taylor, priests, parishes and seminarians, religious, and Catholic families.

Our programs are family and parish based to serve our church through our deeds and actions as Catholic families through the four pillars of our order:  Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism.  

Our jurisdiction is made up of over 7300 Catholic men in local Knights councils across the state.  We encourage all Catholic men 18+ to join us in our efforts.

What is a Knight?

The Knights of Columbus was founded on the principles of charity, unity and fraternity.  Established in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney at St. Mary's Church in New Haven, Connecticut, his intent was to bring financial aid and assistance to the sick, disabled and needy members and their families.

As the world’s foremost Catholic fraternal benefit society, the Order has helped families obtain economic security and stability through its life insurance, annuity and long-term care programs, and has contributed time and energy worldwide to service in communities.

The Knights of Columbus has grown from several members in one council to more than 13,000 councils and 1.7 million members throughout the United States, Canada, the Philippines, Mexico, Poland, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Panama, the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, Cuba, Guatemala, Guam, Saipan and Ukraine.

Knights are Active!

We are called the "Strong Right Arm of the Church" because in addition to time and money,
Knights use a lot of muscle to get things done in communities around the state.
