The Knights of Columbus is the world's largest Catholic fraternal service organization. Founded in the United States in 1882, it is named in honor of Christopher Columbus and dedicated to the principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity, and Patriotism. There are more than 1.7 million members in 14,000 councils. Membership is limited to "practical Catholic" men aged 18 or older.
The Knights of Columbus councils are independent from the parish structure. St. Leonard Council #6448 is affiliated with the parish. St. Leonard's Knights of Columbus Council meetings are on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month, with the first meeting of the month for business and the second meeting for social gathering. Our council supports many activities for parish families. Please refer to the list below. Our fund raising efforts benefit the seminarians at the Sacred Heart School of Theology, the Vines and Branches Program at St. Leonard and college scholarships for graduating seniors of Muskego High School and Catholic Memorial High School, as well as other worthy causes.
