Livermore Knights of Columbus, Council #4588

The Knights of Columbus was founded by Father Michael J. McGivney in 1882, on the principals of Charity, Unity and Fraternity, and is the world's largest Catholic family fraternal service organization with over 1.9 million members.  The K of C organization provides members and their families with volunteer opportunities in service to the Catholic Church, their communities, families and young people. 


Knights are men who get things done. By working together, globally we were able to donate more than $1.4 billion and 664 million volunteer hours to worthy causes in the past decade.
