The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic men's fraternal benefit society that was formed to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works.

Archbishop William E. Lori of Baltimore and Chaplain for the Knights of Columbus wrote an article for the Catholic Review In service of one, in service of all about the history and mission of the Knights.

The Bel Air Council was founded on December 16, 1958 and works closely with the parishes of Saint Mark in Fallston MD, and Saint Margaret in Bel Air MD. Its members are active participants in their parishes.
