The Knights of Columbus is open to all men who are practicing Catholics and are at least 18 years of age. The Knights of Columbus was formed in 1882 in Connecticut to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works. 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.
The Archbishop Charles A. Salatka Knights of Columbus Council 13366 was formed in 2003 at St. Joseph Old Cathedral and has approximately 50 members. The council holds quarterly parish breakfast and dinners, and regularly assists the church in various parish projects. The Council also holds social events throughout the year that include family members. Members meet in the parish's Religious Education building following the 10 AM Mass on the first Sunday of the month, except during July. Knights who belong to other councils and become St. Joseph Old Cathedral parishioners may switch their memberships to Council 13366.
