There are over 22,000 young Catholic men between the ages of 12 and 18 holding membership in and participating in the programs of approximately 1,000 Columbian Squire circles. Columbian Squires is an elite group of boy leaders as the junior organization of the Knights of Columbus.
Squires look upon their membership as a chance to change the world through volunteer involvement in the Church and the community; and as a way they can simply help their pastor; neighbor, school or parish.
Being a member of the Columbian Squires means being a leader - someone who knows what to do and when to do it. Sometimes, it means showing others the way, and at other times following their lead.
