On 5th October 1919, Patrick Joseph O'Callaghan, an Irish immigrant from Cork, gathered a meeting of 24 Catholic men at Central Hall, Bath Street, Glasgow and agreed to form a fraternal organisation. - The Knights of St Columba. The Order now has thousands of Members from a wide range of nationalities, backgrounds and ages.

As you will see from the various pages on this website, The Knights of St Columba is a very active organisation that is involved in a wide variety of good works to help not only the Clergy but also those less fortunate than ourselves. By finding our vocation in life we believe we can bring happiness to others and find happiness ourselves.

Faith - Family - Fraternity are the core principles that bind us. To find out more about these principles, click HERE

Knights, with the help of their supporters, raise tens of thousands of pounds per year for local pro-life charities and Hospices plus we support a main National Action Project.

Our Members arrange fundraising, Social Events, Stewarding, Youth Competitions and so much more. We believe that by working together for the common good we become stronger and gain Brothers that become close friends.

In order to do our good works, we have a democratic management system from local Councils, to Provinces, on to Regions and National (Supreme Council). Brothers can take on more responsibility as their time and skills allow.

To do our work more efficiently we have split our Order into various sections that focus on particular areas. Below you will see some examples of the main areas that we cover in the Knights of St Columba.
