Knights of Columbus
KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS
Thanks to the efforts of Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Marys 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 Knights were 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.
