Knights of Columbus

Father Michael J. McGivney founded the Knights of Columbus in 1882 at
St. Mary's Parish in New Haven, CT.  
The Knights of Columbus is an order of Catholic gentlemen committed to
the exemplification of charity, unity, fraternity, patriotism, respect for life and the defense of the priesthood.

Our Council is composed of 65 Knights.  We hold monthly business meeting on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 7p.m.  Meetings are scheduled for one hour with a published email agenda before the actual meeting.  
A meeting Newsletter is sent to all members after the monthly meeting.

Why would you join the Knights of Columbus?

"For just as a body without spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead." 

James 2, 26
