The Knighthood of Saint Michael the Archangel was formed in 1994 with the initiative of the Congregation of Saint Michael the Archangel (CSMA) in Poland with approval from the Holy See’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

The Knights are to proclaim the victory of Jesus Christ over Satan. Their mission is to expiate God for the sins of humankind and to obtain the conversion of sinners. They aim to achieve this by reciting a prayer of exorcism every day to keep away evil spirits from oneself, the Church and the whole world, particularly from those that are tempted and possesed by Satan.

Members carry out the duties of recitation of the prayer of St Michael (simple exorcism) after daily Mass, praying the Chaplet of St Michael and holding monthly prayer meetings in the local parish. Each member promotes devotion to Saint Michael and encourages people tp join the Knighthood. The Knights actively support the apostolate of the Congregation of Saitn Michael in their work with the youth, fostering vocations and aiding missionary causes.
