If you are a practicing Catholic man, age 18 or older, we welcome you to join the leading organization of Catholic Brothers. Being a Knight as part of Council 6281 is more than camaraderie; it is being involved with your community; it is supporting your local Catholic Church, while enhancing your own faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life.


The 1st Degree teaches the lesson of charity, and upon completion of the 1st degree, a new member of Council 6281 is now considered a Knight of Columbus and can participate in all council activities. 1st Degree members are encouraged to attain the 2nd and 3rd Degrees, which teach the lessons of unity and fraternity. Upon taking the Third Degree, a member receives full honors of Knighthood and is “Knighted.” Privileges of 3rd Degree membership include the ability to serve as an officer of our council, and admission to state and Supreme Council business meetings. 1st and 2nd Degree members can attend the state and Supreme Council meetings, but they are not allowed in the business sessions.
