    The Knights of Columbus offers men a place to lead their families and communities in faith and service and put their Faith into Action. Knights of Columbus members, parishes and families have the opportunity to make a meaningful difference through 32 Supreme Council-recommended programs.

    FAITH IN ACTION

    WELCOMING MEN TO THE KNIGHTS: A STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE

    As your council works to welcome more men and grow its impact, a church recruitment drive will be essential to your success.

    Choose a Week

    The timing of your church drive is crucial to its success.

    Hold a drive during a busy time at the parish, such as the beginning of the Lent, when men are starting to take a more active interest in committing to their faith and parish life.

    Plan the Details

    Once you select a week to hold the church drive, you'll want to plan out the entire event. Be sure to include the following:

    Pulpit Announcement

    Obtain the permission of your pastor to make a brief announcement about the council and your drive following one or more Masses. At the end of Mass, council members should be available to answer any questions, hand out flyers or assist with membership documents. Wear Knights of Columbus apparel to make yourselves easily identifiable.

    Information Night/Fraternal Benefits Night

    Plan an informational night where men can learn more about the Knights of Columbus and what your council does. Reach out to your field agent and ask him to speak about the Order's insurance program.

    Faith, Fraternity and Service Events

    Expose prospective members to all facets of the Knights of Columbus. Start by organizing some of the Faith in Action programs listed at kofc.org/faithinaction. Your events don't need to be large-scale; you could gather for daily Mass, grab dinner as a council or help your parish with a project. This will allow men to see the diversity and influence of your council.

    Join Us

    Men will join the Knights -- if you ask them. Invite them to join by completing the Form 100 or visiting

    kofc.org/joinus. Extend the invitation to your greater community: advertise kofc.org/joinus in your parish bulletin, with your pastor's permission, and in community news outlets.

    Put Your Faith in Action

    Remain vibrant and exciting by conducting an event for new members. It can be as simple as a dinner with the Knights and their families or something more involved, such as a community service project. Finding ways to keep new members engaged will keep them interested and active.

    Promote Your Council

    Create flyers and posters to distribute around your parish, with the permission of your pastor. If your council has a Facebook page or a Twitter account, you can promote your drive using social media.

    Also, wearing Knights of Columbus gear creates awareness of your council. The more your council's presence is made known, the more men will be interested.

    Order Brochures and Supplies

    Candidate's Kits, brochures, posters and other materials are available for free from the Supreme Council.

    LEADERSHIP RESOURCES

    FRATERNAL SUCCESS PLANNER

    The Fraternal Leader Success Planner (#5033) should be used by each fraternal leader to plan and to keep track of council programs, events, membership drives, and degree exemplifications. The planner is also a tool to measure your council’s success. As State Deputy, encourage use of this planner in your jurisdiction.

    Fraternal Training Page

    This page replaces the old Fraternal Training Portal hosted by SABA. All your training materials are centrally located here for your use.
