Founded by Father Michael J. McGivney to provide financial aid to immigrants and families suffering from the death of the breadwinner, the Knights of Columbus has grown to over 15,000 councils and 1.9 million members. In 2016, the Knights set a record for charity with $177,500,673 in donations and 75 million hours of service.
Cloverdale Council #7276 provides over $40,000 and 5000 hours of service per year to Precious Blood Parish, Cloverdale Catholic School, and our local and global community.
“Whether at home or abroad, charity is our Order’s first principle and the basis for all we do as brother Knights. It is the tangible way that we live out that spirit of fraternity and “missionary discipleship” to which Pope Francis has called us.” - Supreme Knight Carl Anderson
