Salatka – St. Joseph Old Cathedral Knights of Columbus was formed in 2003 and has about 50 members. The Knights of Columbus was formed in 1882 in Connecticut to render financial aid to members and their families.

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