Supreme Council Office
The Knights of Columbus international headquarters is located in New Haven, Connecticut. Led by the Supreme Knight, the chief executive officer of the Knights, the office provides administrative support and leadership for our more than 14,000 local units.
The Supreme Council has more than 75 state council organizations to help guide regional activities that are consistent with the principles of the Order.
Each state council is divided into districts – groupings of several local councils.
Local councils are the basic unit of the Knights. Most are based in parishes, though some have their own council hall within a community. Each local council works to assist with the needs of its community consistent with the principles of the Order.
Every council is assigned a certified insurance agent, who is a Knight, and whose job it is to provide our top-rated products focused on the financial needs of members’ families.
In this region we are very fortunate to have Edward O’Keefe, CLU, ChFC, CASL serving as our field agent for Bel Air Council and all the councils in Harford and Cecil counties. Ed lives in Harford County with his wife Mary Anne and daughter Mallory. More information about Ed O’Keefe.
