The Georgia Martyrs Knights of Columbus Council 17969

The Knights of Columbus was founded by Father Michael J. McGivney on Feb. 6, 1882 with a mission of charity.


Charity is at the heart of our work and our faith – and it always has been. For the Knights of Columbus, charity means supporting a virtually boundless variety of projects.


Our commitment to charitable service is just one of the many ways that we express our Catholic faith. We’re here to build a daily bridge back to what matters, for our members and fellow Catholics.


With 1.9 million members around the world, we have been investing our time, effort and resources into our values of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism since 1882.
