ABOUT US
About the Knights of Council 8659
We are a group of Catholic men, from all backgrounds, demographic groups, and different parish communities, bound together by our love for Jesus Christ, His Catholic Church, and our country.  We have answered the call  and have decided to "step in the breach" to proclaim the dignity of every person, and to defend that life from conception to death. We are a local brotherhood of men, connected to other men around the world, who strive to play a part in improving the world around us, one community at a time.  We stand together in faith, dedicated to upholding the principles we cherish - of charity, fraternity, unity and patriotism - through prayer, service, leading, learning, and protecting.
