How do I Join?

Joining the Knights of Columbus in Massachusetts could not be easier!   At the bottom of this page is a convenient Web Application for members.  You can also access the form by clicking here.

Application for membership is most commonly made to a council in the community nearest the applicant’s place of residence. Applicants temporarily away from home, such as those in the military, may apply either through their hometown council, the council on the military base to which they are assigned or another council in a community near them.

Acceptance of the application depends on an admissions process at the council you wish to join. At the conclusion of the application process, an applicant becomes a member by initiation in what is called the First Degree. Subsequently he may advance through the Second and Third degrees.

There are modest initiation fees and annual dues set by your local council in accordance with regulations established by the Supreme Council. Priests and religious brothers who have applied for membership and attended the ceremonials become honorary life members and are exempt from the payment of dues.
