Knights of Columbus
Thanks to the efforts of Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven and some of his parishioners, the Connecticut state legislature on March 29, 1882, officially chartered the Knights of Columbus as a fraternal benefit society. The Order is still true to its founding principles of charity, unity and fraternity.
The Knights was formed to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works.
If you’re interested in more information about the Knights of Columbus, visit the web site at www.kofc.org or contact our Grand Knight, Dan Canuel, in our parish.
The KC General Meeting is on the 2nd Monday of the month at 7:00 pm in the K of C Room. Would love to see all our Brother Knights there.
