The KMKI was founded at the turn of the year 1961/62 on the joint initiative of Indonesian students from Austria, Belgium, Germany, Italy, and the Netherlands. 50 of them gathered at Schloss Ising on Lake Chiemsee from 26 December 1961 to 1 January 1962. There the idea was born to strengthen the fellowship between Indonesian Catholic students in Europe through a 'family organisation'. The founding date of the KMKI is 1 January 1962.


The KMKI follows the principle "In necessariis unitas, in dubiis libertas, in omnibus caritas" - a common statement that means: "In the necessary, let there be unanimity; in the doubtful, let there be freedom; but in everything, let there be charity". KMKI's goals are divided into internal and external goals. Internally, KMKI aims to promote professional, critical, open-minded, sensitive, and responsible people. This is supported by various KMKI activities that promote the learning process and quality development of KMKI members by paying attention to a balance between emotional and intellectual aspects.
Externally, KMKI aims to have an impact on society through its members. Thus, members shall be sensitive to social problems in society, actively participate in upholding moral, ethical, and human values, and participate in creating a harmonious and balanced life among religious communities. KMKI members are expected to actively participate in problem-solving in society, especially in Indonesia.
