The Columbian Squires is a youth group sponsored by the Knights of Columbus. It is open to Catholic young men ages 10 to 18. The purpose of the Squires program is to develop young men as Catholic leaders who understand their religion, who have a strong commitment to the Church and who are ready, willing and capable of living their lives in the manner of the youth Christ. A Squires circle is designed to be run both by and for young men.
Locally, Seton’s Squires have raised over $3000 for Pro Life charities, participated in Plano parades and Hike for Life, have met our Bishop and participated in Mass at the Cathedral. They’ve also been to retreats and other social and educational opportunities.
The Columbian Squires program was begun in 1925, under the oversight of the Knights of Columbus, in order to give young men a better opportunity in life - a chance to receive the leadership training and the spiritual and moral guidance they will need in order to succeed.
Today there are approximately 30,000 Squires belonging to more than 1,000 Cirlces throughout the United States, Canada, the Phillipines, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and Guam.
Squires activities are many, varying from spiritual to active service for the Church and community. Each circle elects officer members from their own rank, teaching skills of leadership and responsibility.
