  • The Knights of St Columba
    We are dedicated to the principles of Charity, Unity and Fraternity and have more than 4,000 members in over 300 Councils across England, Scotland and Wales. Membership is limited to practising Catholic men aged 16 or older.

    Our aim is to come together to praise God, through the musical talents He has given us, in a warm and caring group.

    We have sung in most churches in the area, often as part of the liturgy, sometimes for charitable causes or simply to share our joy in music with others. Our repertoire is wide and ranges from the sublime to the simple, from very old to very modern.

    Who are the knights

    The Knights of St Columba is an Order of Catholic laymen, open to all practicing Catholic men over the age of 16. The organisation, which is non-political, exists to support the mission of the Catholic Church by undertaking Catholic Action and Charitable and Benevolent work under the general direction of the Hierarchy.

    The Knights’ motto is “Serving God by Serving Others” and members of the Order strive to achieve their aims through the fundamental virtues of charity, unity and fraternity. The Order was founded in the UK in 1919 by Catholic Gentlemen in Glasgow and today has about eight thousand members organised into Provinces and Councils. Details of the history of the Order and its current national and international activities can be seen on the Knights of Saint Columba official web site at www.ksc.org.uk.

    CAFOD believes that all human beings have a right to dignity and respect and that the world's resources are a gift to be shared equally by all men and women, whatever their race, nationality or religion.

    CAFOD is a member of the Caritas International Federation, a worldwide network of Catholic relief and development organisations. CAFOD raises funds from the Catholic community in England and Wales, the UK government and the general public so that it can :

    • promote long-term development, helping people in need to bring about change for themselves through development and relief work.
    • respond to emergencies, providing immediate help for people affected by conflict or natural disasters.
    • identify the causes of poverty and raise public awareness of them, encouraging supporters and the public to challenge the structures, policies and attitudes that reinforce inequality.
    • speak out on behalf of poor communities, explaining the underlying causes of poverty and challenging governments and international bodies to adopt policies that promote equality and justice.
    • promote human development and social justice in witness to Christian faith and gospel values.

    CAFOD's work is one of the ways in which the Church expresses and enacts its belief in human dignity and social justice. It is inspired by Scripture, by Catholic Social Teaching and by the experiences and hopes of the poor, marginalised and often oppressed communities it supports.
    CAFOD is funded and supported mainly by the Catholic community in England and Wales to assist poor communities, regardless of creed. Enacting Gospel values, it works to enact Gospel values, within and beyond the Church

    Vision

    Drawing its inspiration from Scripture, the Church's social teaching and the experiences and hopes of the poor, CAFOD looks forward to a world in which :

    • the good things of creation are cherished, developed and shared by all
    • the rights and dignity of each person are respected, discrimination is ended and all are gathered into a single human family from which no-one is excluded
    • the voice of the poor is heard and heeded by all and lives are no longer dominated by greed
    • all have access to food, shelter and clean water; to a livelihood, health and education
    Mission

    CAFOD's mission is to promote human development and social justice in witness to Christian faith and Gospel values. To fulfil this mission, CAFOD raises funds from within the Catholic community and beyond so that it can :

    • empower people in need regardless of their race, gender, religion or politics to bring about change through development and relief programmes overseas
    • raise public awareness of poverty and injustice, increasing understanding of the world-wide interdependence of rich and poor and creating the will to change unjust structures and lifestyles
    • act as an advocate for the poor, articulating a clear analysis of the underlying causes of poverty and challenging governments and international bodies to adopt policies which incorporate the principles of social justice
