The Columbiettes is a unified group of Catholic women who work side by side with the Knights of Columbus to promote the ideals of Columbianism: faith, family, charity and patriotism. Any Catholic woman at least 17 years of age is eligible to become a Columbiette. Although affiliated with the Knights of Columbus, each auxiliary has its own by-laws and procedures. Each auxiliary also has its own charities and fundraising projects, while still supporting the local Knights. There are currently Columbiette auxiliaries in 14 states in the U.S.A. and Canada. South Carolina has 9 auxiliaries, with a new one due to be initiated in September. The SJN Auxiliary currently has 75 members. Meetings are on the third Thursday of the month at 7:00 PM in Gillin Hall.
