Established on October 25, 1908, we are the oldest council in Waco. Our humble beginnings were assisted by Council #803 of Houston, TX. for our formation as a new council. Through their efforts, the Waco area has been impacted with great Catholic men and their families serving those in need. Knights of Columbus Council #1358, Catholic men who have pulled together in prayer, fellowship, and service for all.

The Principle of the 4th Degree is Patriotism.
