What is the Columbian Squires?
The Columbian Squires, the official youth organization of the Knights of
Columbus, is a leadership development program for young Catholic men, 10-18
years old. There are over 25,000 Catholic young men in over 1,400 local
units, called circles, throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, the
Philippines, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, the Bahamas and Guam.
The Squires is designed to develop young men as leaders who understand their
Catholic religion, who have a strong commitment to the Church and who are
ready, willing and capable of patterning their lives after the Youth Christ.
Squires have fun. They meet new friends; they travel, play sports and
socialize. Squires are serious-minded, too. Squires are involved in
promoting vocations, marching in defense of unborn life, feeding the hungry,
clothing the poor, supporting Special Olympics and promoting Catholic
education, among countless other activities. Thus, the Squires circle is an
athletic team, a youth group, a social club, a cultural and civic
improvement association, a management-training course, a civil rights
organization and a spiritual development program all rolled into one.

Investitures are held throughout the year. Please contact Chief Squire
