As the world’s largest Catholic family fraternal service organization, the Knights of Columbus boasts 1.8 million members who strive to perform all good works as led by their four core principles- charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism. As loyal servants to the core principles, many Knights are called to the service of their country through the branches of the military, such as Captain Francis X. Castellano of the U.S. Navy. Here, learn about Captain Frank, the real-life Knight who saved Captain Philips from the Somali Pirates, as portrayed in the movie Captain Philips.
Join us for the broadcast of this year’s gathering of the 132nd Supreme Convention live from Orlando, Florida, August 5-7, 2014. Throughout our broadcast, we’ll highlight initiatives of the Knights in the last year and offer documentaries that explore not only The Knights, but our faith. Find out more here.
