Unity is the second core principle of the Knights...
Unity means none of us is as good as all of us.

This principle helps Knights realize their true potential as Christian brothers and the sacred power of unity.

Members of the Knights of Columbus all know that – together – we can accomplish far more than any of us could individually. So we stick together…we support one another. That doesn’t mean that we always agree or that there is never a difference of opinion.

It does mean that – as a Knight of Columbus – you can count on the support and encouragement of your brother Knights as you work to make life better in your parish and community.

Members of the Knights of Columbus are united in the body of Christ, ritualized and embodied in their full participation in the Catholic Church.

Their loyalty to Christ and the unity which He encompasses, is realized through their commitment to one another and their local, regional, and global church.


Prayer for Unity and Healing

Heavenly Father,
The Cross and Resurrection of Your Son, Jesus Christ, renews our hope
that light will triumph over darkness, goodness over evil, life over death.
In His love, may Your Son bring consolation and strength to those who suffer.
We pray in a special way for those, who, as young people, were abused
by members of the clergy, family members, teachers, and others.
Impart Your healing and peace to those
who continue to suffer as the result of broken trust.
Grant to us all the grace to reach out to those who have been harmed
in a spirit of love and compassion.
Bless us, as with the help of Your grace, we recommit ourselves
to growth in virtue and holiness.
In Your goodness, Lord, strengthen Your whole Church,
both shepherds and flock, so that, living the truth in charity,
we may hasten toward that day when Your Son’s prayer will be fulfilled,
‘that they may all be one.’
Grant this through the same Christ, Our Lord. Amen.
