The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic fraternal organization. Charity is the first principle of the Knights of Columbus. Knights are men of faith and men of action. We volunteer countless hours of our time to charitable causes around the world and in the local communities. Council 1574 has been serving the area since 1911. We serve the Parishes of Immaculate Conception Braidwood, Assumption Coal City, St. Lawrence South Wilmington, Sacred Heart Kinsman, and St. Mary's Reddick as well as their surrounding communities. 

We continually strive to bring the hope of Christ's love to our area through our service and support. We live out the Faith in our families and they are a crucial part of our events. Explore the benefits our membership offers. You can keep up to date on our events or learn more about us at or on Facebook at Braidwood Knights of Columbus. 

LORD, grant us the strength to serve others, in Your name, Amen.
