Knights of Columbus

Founded by Father Michael J. McGivney in 1882, the Knights of Columbus is a fraternal benefit society. The Order is still true to its founding principles of charity, unity and fraternity.

Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works.
