'Serve God by serving others'
The Knights of St Columba is a Catholic men's organisation dedicated to the service of others. It was founded in 1919 and is named after St Columba who was an Irish Christian missionary who helped introduce Christianity to the people of Northern Britain.
The Knights of St Columba:
- are dedicated to the principles of charity, unity, fraternity
- are open to all practicing Catholic men over the age of 16
- have as their mission to support the teachings of the Catholic Church & they work 'for the moral and social welfare of their communities.'
Look out for the social activities in the Newsletter, organised by the Knights of the Catholic Parishes of Chichester and the Witterings: these include the regular Fish and Chip and Quiz nights held at the various churches.
