Is there anything like the Knights of Columbus for women?

I have decided i would like to do more inside the church. I don't do much right now, I do volunteer to help kids get college money and I teach CCD but I would like to more.

The KoC is great and raises a lot of money for charities, is there a female version?

  • Some KoC chapters have a women's auxillary called the Columbiettes but not all of them do.  Some dioceses also have a Catholic Daughters of the Americas.

  • thehairnazi - I think you might be confusing the Knights of Columbus (a Catholic organiziation) with the Masons/Freemasons. They're two very different things. The Easter Star is assoicated with the Mason, not the KoC.

  • Katty- there is also a women's group called The Legion of Mary. They get together for fellowship and to pray the rosary, and they usually do quite a bit of outreach for the community. I wish we had something like that here.
