About the Knights of Columbus

Our council was chartered in 1954. When our ballroom was blessed in 1957, it was surrounded by fields – note the dirt path is now American Boulevard. Thousands of newlyweds held receptions in the room where they “met their match” at CYO dances.ConstrucHallBless

Today we serve new generations of multi-cultural families with parties, fundraisers and athletics. We remain Bloomington and Richfield’s largest charity, and a force for good.

Join us. Benefits. We welcome everyone to our activities, but members must be Catholic men age 18+. See your parish priest, another Knight, our membership director, or just show up!
