PROTECTING CATHOLIC FAMILIES FOR GENERATIONS
early members were recent immigrants who often lived in unsanitary
conditions and performed hazardous jobs for poor pay. Since its
founding, a primary mission of the Knights of Columbus has been to
protect families against the financial ruin caused by the death of
the breadwinner. While this method originally was intended to
provide a core group of people who would support a widow and her
children after the death of their husband and father, it has
flourished and matured into much more.
the Order offers a modern, professional insurance operation with
more than $60 billion of life insurance policies in force. Products
term life insurance as well as
long term care insurance. Insurance sales grew 19% in 2004, more
than three times the rate of industry at large. The Order holds $13
billion in assets and had $1.5 billion in revenue and $71 million in
profits in 2005. This is large enough to rank 72nd on the A.M. Best
