Frequently Asked Questions

How is the Knights of Columbus structured?

Every Knight belongs to a local council, and there are more than 13,000 active councils around the world. Each council elects its own officers, and decides what activities it will engage in. Although some councils have their own KC Halls, most newer councils are parish-based, and meet at their local parishes. Local councils, in turn, are part of a state council. Each local council elects delegates to annual state conventions where they choose state officers. The state conventions elect delegates to the annual Supreme Convention, which is held in a different city each August.
