Knights of Columbus and their families from around the world gathered at the Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville for the order’s 140th Supreme Convention.
Among those on hand were a host of cardinals, bishops and priests. The convention featured impressive liturgies, speeches by luminaries of the Catholic Church in America, and a lot of fun.
The Knights, with more than 2 million members across the globe, is the largest Catholic fraternal, service organization in the world. It was the third time Tennessee has hosted the Supreme Convention, following the 1941 convention in Memphis and the 2007 convention in Nashville.
Staffers from the Tennessee Register captured some of the activities during the convention, which was held Aug. 2-4. Check out all our coverage of the events and a complete photo gallery below.
