Walking Together: The Papal Visit to CanadaAs Pope Francis begins his historic visit to Canada, learn about the Church’s relationship with Indigenous peoples and the role the Knights of Columbus has played in preparing for the Holy Father’s visit. For example, Alberta Knights raised more than CA$150,000 to renovate Sacred Heart Church of the First Peoples, a national parish for Indigenous Catholics in downtown Edmonton that suffered a devastating fire in 2020. The restored and recently rededicated church will welcome Pope Francis later today. WATCH HERE | READ MORE

 The Knight Who Was ChestertonGilbert Keith Chesterton was one of the most famous English writers in the early 20th century — as well as one of the most irresistibly quotable literary figures on both sides of the Atlantic. When he visited the United States on a speaking tour in 1921, he stopped in New Haven, Conn., and met with members of the Knights of Columbus. Chesterton so treasured the gift he received from them that he chose to have it at his side when he entered the Catholic Church 100 years ago, on July 30, 1922. READ MORE
