The Columbiettes, an organization of Catholic women dedicated to our Patronesses, Blessed Virgin Mary, St. Theresa the Little Flower and St. Joan of Arc, are comprised of affiliated Auxiliaries of the Knights of Columbus Councils.


A Columbiette Auxiliary is in existence only with the consent and approval of the Council with which it is affiliated. One of our purposes is to aid our Council spiritually, socially and financially. The Columbiette Auxiliary upon request aids said Council in all its endeavors.

Our purpose is to:
  • promote the spiritual, social and charitable welfare of our members
  • to instill a steadfast conviction relating to the proper place and function of Catholic women in safeguarding the religious, civil and economic rights of all Catholics
  • to rely upon the intercession of Mary, our Mother and Model, for guidance in guarding the common good, and to work through her, on loving and aiding all members of the human family and to give assistance to the Knights of Columbus in all their activities upon request.
  • The BLUE CIRCLE represents the World.
  • The WHITE CROSS represents Christ’s love for us – by His Crucifixion He redeemed the World.
  • The RAYS represent our zeal to serve God through the Mediums of Faith, Hope and Charity symbolized by the THREE WHITE STARS.
