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.
