“The Knights of Columbus, long a defender of Catholic values, has to meet the changing needs of the Church and society in order to remain relevant, says its leader. Carl Anderson, Supreme Knight of the organization since 2000, recently shared his views with ZENIT on the 121-year-old group and its new strategy for growth. In 2002, the Knights of Columbus donated a record $128.5 million to charity and volunteered a record 60.8 million hours of service. Recipients included Catholic parishes and schools, seminaries, the Special Olympics, World Youth Day 2002, youth athletics and scholarships.”
