Knights of Columbus

The Knights of Columbus Fraternal Order was founded by Father Michael McGivney in 1882 for the welfare of widows and orphans. Today, the Order has grown to a worldwide charity that serves the Catholic Church and the community. It also protects and fosters the family by providing life insurance, long term care benefits, scholarships, and more. You can learn more about the order at

Council 1033 serves Kaukauna and its two Catholic parishes. By partnering with other councils and charitable institutions, we support projects throughout the Fox Valley and the rest of the state. Our work strives to recognize every individual's dignity, with particular emphasis on the vulnerable of our society such as unborn children, people with cognitive disabilities, immigrants, and the poor. We also maintain at each parish "Round Tables" whose membership is open to any parishioner and serves at the direction of the pastor. You can explore our council's activities at and then consider becoming a member of a council or Round Table.
