130th Knights of Columbus Supreme Convention August 7-9, 2012


Started by a humble parish priest, the Knights of Columbus have grown into the world’s largest lay Catholic organization with over 1.8 million members.
Every year the Knights gather to celebrate their faith and the work they do. In particular, they celebrate the organization’s core principles of charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism. The statistics are always stunning. In the last decade alone over 1.4 billion dollars have been raised and 653 million hours volunteered for those in need.
This year’s gathering, the 130th Supreme Convention, comes from Anaheim, California, August 7th to 9th. For more information on the Knights of Columbus and this year’s convention visit their official website.
