E-member Program

Our parishes, communities need strong Catholic men to answer the call to lead with faith, protect our families, serve others and defend our values.

For over one hundred and fifteen years, the Knights of Columbus in Kansas have done exactly that, standing up for the Church, serving the least among us and strengthening our parishes and families. Eligible Catholic men, 18 and older, can now join the Knights of Columbus online in a simple, streamline process.

As a member, you join a worldwide community of nearly two million men, including over 38,000 here in Kansas, who stand together. Men we have a duty to lead, protect, serve and defend. The world needs more committed, unified Catholic men to answer the call.

We must use all tools that are available to us to reach new members in the state of Kansas.
