Knights of Columbus

In 1882, Father Michael McGivney founded the Knights of Columbus in Connecticut. In 1904, a Council was established in Lincoln Diocese. Over fifty Councils are currently active in the Diocese. Four key principles characterize the Knights of Columbus: charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism. Some of their works include support of the Magisterium, promotion of the pro-life cause, aid to handicapped persons, support of truly Catholic healthcare, vocation promotion, community involvement, and aid to Catholic education. Two recent building projects include: the Knights of Columbus Bell Tower at the diocesan seminary in Seward and the Knights Court town house community and clubhouse in Lincoln.

Columbian Squires is a junior organization of the Knights of Columbus. This organization helps young men acquire attitudes and skills of leadership. There are Columbian Squire Circles in Wahoo, Lincoln, McCook, Hastings, and David City. These Circles sponsor activities like toy drives, food pantry collections, picnics, swimming parties, baseball games, corporate communions, and a Christmas party at Villa Marie School.
