We are an active-contemplative Franciscan community dedicated to adoring Jesus our Eucharistic King, while striving to observe the Gospels in imitation of St. Francis through a life of poverty, chastity, and obedience for the sake of the Kingdom.
Who We Are
The Knights were founded by Mother Mary Angelica
The Knights were founded by Mother Mary Angelica of the Annunciation, P.C.P.A., on July 25, 1998, feast day of St. James. The spirit of St. Francis, the “Knight-Errant of Assisi,” became a role model for the new Knights; this spirit was demonstrated by St. Francis’ deep sense of faith, fiery enthusiasm for Christ, and readiness to battle for His kingdom on earth.
We live our lives based on eight foundational pillars.

The Knights’ intellectual formation is not just for themselves, but for the service of the Church and of the world. What the Knights are learning will aid them in their important mission. The intellectual life exists in a mutual relationship with the spiritual life, each enabling the other to reach greater heights. At the heart of this formation is the aim to develop more and more a personal knowledge of Jesus Christ.
