The Knights of Columbus Queen of Martyrs Council 4567 is composed of men committed to making their community a better place, while supporting their church and enhancing their own faith. We strive to be devoted men of prayer and integrity who encourage one another and support the needs of our parish and community. Our council is vibrant and active, with over 400 members from all walks of life, whose ages range from 20's to 80's.
Our council often serves the needs of our local parishes through simple acts of service such as blood drives, parking assistance at holiday masses, and running the beverage concessions at parish fairs. We also make a difference in our local community through our many events, service projects, and fundraising activities.
Some of the causes we support include Rancho San Antonio, a home for troubled teens; S.T.A.R. Homes for people with developmental disabilities; scholarships for Catholic schools students; and Christmas gift baskets for local needy families. See our activities page for more information.

The Knights of Columbus was founded in New Haven, CT, in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney. It was formed as a Catholic men's fraternal benefit society to provide members and their families with mutual aid in the event of sickness, disability, or premature death. Today, the "K of C" carries on the vision of Fr. McGivney through its top-rated Life Insurance program and its organizational directives of Charity, Unity, and Fraternity.
