The Knights of Columbus is one of the oldest Catholic Fraternal organizations founded in the United States.

The Knights’ motto is “In Service to One, In Service to All.” The Knights organization was started by Fr. Michael J. McGivney in New Haven, CT. In 1882, Fr. McGivney started the Knights to help aid families in need of financial and spiritual help during a time when loss of a family’s livelihood meant breaking up the family. His cause for Sainthood is being considered by the Vatican.

The Knights Insurance Co. is one of the most respected highest rated insurance companies today.

The St. Philip the Apostle Council #17028 was chartered in May of 2018 and is based at St. Philip the Apostle in Millersville, PA.

The Council meets on the third Thursday of each month. We pray the Rosary at 6:45pm and the meeting starts at 7:00pm.
