The Knights of Columbus is an international fraternal organization of Catholic men, 18 years of age or older, who are committed to deepening their faith and family life, supporting the Church and making their community and world a better place to live. Service and charity are at the heart of the Knights. Founded to meet the needs of immigrants, refugees and families suffering from the death of a breadwinner, the Knights began as a small service organization in 1882 and has grown into a worldwide financial and charitable organization with over 1.9 million members.

Centennial Council 6074 serves 3 parishes: St. Andrew the Apostle in Sudbury, St. John the Evangelist in Garson and St. Paul the Apostle in Coniston.
We work throughout the Community, supporting groups that work to improve the dignity of life at all its stages, particularly Inner City Home, Blue Door Soup Kitchen, Elgin Street Mission, Salvation Army, the Hospice, and Food Banks.
We also run a number of programs for youth, including our “Coats for Kids” and “Basketball Free Throw Competition”, and support the Neo Kids Foundation and Special Olympics.
We have fun at various social events, which include family fun days, barbeques, golf and curling. Even a number of our fundraisers, such as sausage making, pasta suppers and breakfasts are great fun for those involved.
