The Knights of Saint Columba is a Catholic fraternal service organisation, and the largest of its kind in the United Kingdom. Founded in Glasgow in 1919, it is named in honour of St Columba, a Christian missionary from Ireland who helped to introduce Christianity to people in Northern Britain. We are dedicated to the principles of Charity, Unity and Fraternity and have more than 4,000 members in over 300 Councils across England, Scotland and Wales.


Membership is limited to practising Catholic men aged 16 and over. We exist to support the mission and doctrine of the Catholic Church and at the same time to work for the 'spiritual and material good of its members and their families'. We are a founder member of the International Alliance of Catholic Knights. We follow the social teachings of the Catholic Church and work for the moral and social welfare of our communities, and in particular, to help the development of young people. Our members strive to achieve all these aims through charity, unity and fraternity.


Interested to join or learn more?

Feel free to speak to Damian Reilly or other members of the Knights who are often found assisting with the Collection and more at Mass on Sundays.

Below are a selection of things we've been involved in over the years..

St Brendan's grotto. The grotto was built by Canon Cronin in the late 1960's but after a number of attacks by vandals it became overgrown and disappeared under the vegetation. A few years ago it was discovered by the Knights when they were working on the garden. After many months of hard work it was restored to its former splendour. Fr Gerard thanks the Knights for the restoration, a special thank you goes to Bro Gavin and Bro Mickey. The grotto was blessed after 6.00pm mass on Saturday 8th June with the Knights in attendance.   

A Knighthood Ceremony was held at Our Lady's in May 2013 during which Brother Tommy Sweeny was presented with his Past Grand Knights medal and a Certificate of Merit  for his services to the KSC.  Tommy is pictured with his son Tom.




Two Knights, Brothers Gavin and Damian, went on a pilgrimage to Lourdes as helpers on the Jumbulance.
