Knights of Columbus

OUR HISTORY AND HERITAGE

Knights

Founded on the principles of charity, unity, and fraternity, the Knights of Columbus was established in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary's Church in New Haven, Conn., and a group of parishioners. Their intent? To bring financial aid and assistance to the sick, disabled, and needy members and their families.

Today, Father McGivney is being considered for sainthood.
