Knights of Columbus

From the moment of our founding in 1882 by the venerable Fr. McGivney, charity has been the first principle of the Knights of Columbus. We are Catholic men of faith and men of charitable action. 

The Knights of Columbus of St. Barbara’s of Brookfield work hard throughout the year to fulfill this principle and Fr. McGivney’s dream.  We support St. Barbara’s of Brookfield Parish by raising money for parish needs (pancake breakfast), encouraging the youth (Free Throw Championship) and strengthening faith (monthly rosary and leading Stations of the Cross).  We support our community by raising funds or donating good and services to local organizations (St. Barbara’s Food Pantry, CSS, Helping Hand and Mercy Homes for Boys and Girls).

The Knights of Columbus isn’t about giving all your time it’s about capitalizing it for charity.  If you are a Catholic man age 18 year or older and would like information about our mission please email This email address is being protected from spambots.
