The Knights of Columbus is an organization fortified by its past, and driven by its goals for the future. It is through these five areas of service — faith, community, family, youth, and fellowship — that we truly make a difference.
As Knights, our faith is our foundation. Dedicated to the Catholic Church’s growth and her good works. We support religious outreach, promote vocations, and provide financial support for seminarians and postulates. This way, we help support our Church and strengthen our personal faith.
As committed as we are to the Catholic Church, so are we to our communities. By actively and financially supporting Special Olympics, by leading the charge in pro-life, or by safeguarding the environment, Knights of Columbus members all over the world have helped countless communities prosper.
As fathers and husbands, serving our families is not only part of what we do, it’s part of who we are. To that end, Knights of Columbus councils offer programs that strengthen family and marital bonds by holding numerous family focused events, including the “Family of the Month” program that honors outstanding families. Most importantly, as Knights, we are able to provide assistance and support to Knights and their families whenever needed.
The importance of helping today’s youth become tomorrow’s leaders is also a huge focus of the Order. For that reason, many local councils sponsor Columbian Squire Circles, the Order’s official youth organization for Catholic young men, ages 10–18, which provide them the unique opportunity to develop leadership skills. Additionally, through activities such as the Catholic Citizenship Essay contest, the Substance Abuse Poster contest, Coats for Kids program and the annual FreeThrow championship, the Knights of Columbus assists youth in building a strong sense of civic and religious responsibility.
To be a Knight means to believe in each other as we believe in ourselves; realizing that by creating strong, social, and supportive local councils, we help create a stronger Order worldwide and ensure an even stronger future.

Each year the Holy Family Knights of Columbus Council 10019 of Lewiston sponsor the Catholic Citizenship Essay Contest for the 8th graders at Saint Dominic Academy. The theme this year was “Discuss the Meaning of Virtue and How You Live and Embody the Virtue of Charity”. Twenty seven students participated in this year’s contest. The winner of the Essay contest is Rieslynn Bernier. Her essay will be submitted to the Maine State Council to be judged against 8th grade students across the State of Maine. Gabriella Roman came in second and Lauren Fletcher third. Fact: Saint Dom’s 8th grade students have won the State championship the last four years in a row. Will Miss Bernier’s essay extend their winning streak to five?
