Join the Knights


The Knights of Columbus is the world’s largest Catholic family fraternal service organization with over 2 million members worldwide. It provides members and their families with volunteer opportunities in service to the Catholic Church, their communities, families and young people. This is accomplished with support from men like you; for nothing can be done greatly alone. Your involvement with Joseph B. Cavallaro Council Knights of Columbus will enable us to continue to support the “homeless” with clothing, the “needy” with food, the youth with guidance and finances for their worthwhile activities, and our Church with its ministries and humane programs.



As a member of the Knights of Columbus you and your family enjoy many benefits, including 12 free issues annually of the Columbia magazine, the world’s largest Catholic family magazine, eligibility to join the Knights of Columbus top-ranked life insurance program, and many more family and personal benefits.

There are 8,760 hours in a year, 8,784 in a Leap Year. Do you have 24 hours a year to spare? That’s all we are asking you to give up, 24 hours a year to help your parish, community, and family. Contact us to make an appointment to find out what those 24 hours entail. Click here to send us an E-Mail, or call us at 718-259-5080.



Membership in the Knights of Columbus is open to practicing Catholic men in union with the Holy See, who are at least 18 years old. A practicing Catholic is one who lives up to the Commandments of God and the precepts of the Church.

Applications are available from any member of the Knights of Columbus.
