Who are the Knights?
Council 4851 Hall The Knights of Columbus, founded by Father Michael J. McGivney, is the world's largest Catholic family fraternal service organization with 1.6 million members. It provides members and their families with volunteer opportunities in service to the Catholic Church, their communities, families and young people.

Council 4851 Knights and their families serve our community by sharing their time or talents in Council events. This time, supplemented with donations, help local charities help the mentally or physically handicapped, youngsters in distress, and unborn children: Marian Center for Developmental Disabilities, Special Olympics, Schott Communities for the Deaf and Disabled, Covenant House Florida shelters for homeless youth, Respect Life Ministry, etc. Donating our time, we support our Churches' events while, at the same time, sharing a Catholic family life, meeting new people and having fun. For more details, please see Activities.
