History of The Knights of Columbus

The Knights of Columbus was founded on the principles of charity, unity and fraternity.   The order 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.
