Welcome to the The Greater Cincinnati Chapter representing all Knights of Columbus and their Councils in Cincinnati, Ohio
The Knights of Columbus is the world’s largest Catholic family fraternal service organization with 1.7 million members. It provides members and their families with volunteer opportunities in service to the Catholic Church, their communities, families and young people.
Thanks to the efforts of Father Michael J. McGinvey, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven and some of his parishioners, the Connecticut state legislature on March 29, 1882, officially chartered the Knights of Columbus as a fraternal benefit society. The Order is still true to its founding principles of Charity, Unity and Fraternity.
Every Council is invited to send a representative to our meetings. The Chapter meets on the first Wednesday of each month. We honor our Blessed Mother with Rosary at 7:15 PM and Meeting starts at 7:30 PM. The meetings rotate among the Councils at their invitation. The Chapter is an information sharing forum between the Grand Knights of the Councils, District Deputy, our local Clergy, the Local K of C leadership, and representatives of the Ohio State Council who attend. Each council is allowed three delegates, dues are $10 per delegate.
