The Order of the Knights of Columbus is the world's largest Catholic fraternal service organization. Founded in the United States by Father Michael J. McGivney in 1882, it is named in honor of Christopher Columbus and is dedicated to the principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and Patriotism. Council 3162 is dedicated to those same principles and is proud to serve Mission San Luis Rey Parish and the surrounding community by donating our time, talent and treasure.
We provide monetary support to our parish religious education and youth programs and the social concerns program which provides for those in need within and outside our parish. We support the Pro-Life initiatives and gather donations for the Pregnancy Resource Center here in Oceanside. We support the intellectually challenged in our community through the annual "Tootsie Roll Drive" with proceeds going to Ivey Ranch Park Association. There are plenty of opportunities for you to be involved, but it is all on your terms. We are all volunteers with families, jobs and other commitments, and we help when we can.
If you have been looking for a way to give back, then look no further. WE NEED YOU. Call one of our Knights today!
