Welcome to the South Dakota Knights of Columbus! Founded in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney in New Haven, CT, the South Dakota Knights of Columbus is one of 50 state jurisdictions.

From our humble beginnings in 1903 with the chartering of Marquette Council 815 in Sioux Falls on October 22, 1903, Huron Council 779 on October 27, 1903, Aberdeen Council 820 on October 29, 1903 and Lead (Black Hills) Council 703 on December 6, 1903 we have grown to over 80 councils with 8,000+ members.

As the world’s largest Catholic Men’s Fraternal Organization in the world, we continue to support our Pope, our Bishops, our Priests, our Deacons and those in Consecrated Life through our prayers and actions as we pursue our four principles: Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism.
