Name

Columbian Squires

The Squires were established under the direction of Brother Barnabas McDonald, F.S.C. together with Supreme Director Daniel A. Tobin on August 4, 1925. At that time there was a national interest in youth in the United States, as reflected by the development of the Boy Scouts of America and the Big Brother movement.

The Boy Movement Committee of the Supreme Council of the Knights of Columbus sent questionnaires to each Grand Knight and after receiving the responses met with Brother Barnabas. Brother Barnabas had gained a national reputation for his pioneering work with delinquents and orphans.

According to Brother Barnabas, "The supreme purpose of the Columbian Squires is character building." Squires have fun and share their Catholic faith, help people in need, and enjoy the company of friends in social, family, athletic, cultural, civic and spiritual activities. Through their local circle, Squires work and socialize as a group of friends, elect their own officers, and develop into Catholic leaders.

Our council sponsors Squires Circle number 4899 for young men between the ages of 10 and 18. The Squires Circle counselor is Sir Knight Lou Failla.  For more information on the Squires circle #4899 or to join the local Squires e-mail: luigi1242005@hotmail.com
