How to Join

If you are a practical Catholic man, age 18 or older, we welcome you to join the leading organization of Catholic laymen. Being a Knight is more than camaraderie; it is being involved with the local community, it is supporting the six Catholic Churches in our area, while enhancing your own faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life.

It is easy to join the Fort Smith Knights of Columbus. All you have to do is contact our membership director, Gus Copenhaver, at 479-221-4559 or via e-mail at, Henry Moore, at 479-650-0103, or Columbus Hall at 479-649-7144. We will schedule a time to meet you and discuss with you what the Knights of Columbus are all about.

Another way to join is to contact your local parish office. We have Council/Parish roundtable panels set up with each parish. The parish office will contact the Round Table coordinator who will begin the application process.
