Imagine being part of an organization that fills your heart and your mind with the joy of giving to others and the feeling that comes with making a difference. Knights are Catholic men, 18 years of age and older, who are committed to making their community a better place while supporting their Church. Being a Knight is more than camaraderie; it is being involved with your community; it is supporting your local Catholic Church while enhancing your faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life.

In addition to charitable service for The Basilica School of Saint Mary Star of the Sea, M.A.R.C. House, Scouts, New Beginnings Ministries, The Respect of Human Life, and the Star of the Sea (SOS) Outreach Mission, the Knights also provide family fraternal benefits including student loans, scholarships, annuities, long-term care, life insurance and more.
