About Our Council
Charity, Unity, Fraternity
Provide aide and service to the community through projects and donations.
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, Connecticut, and a group of parishioners.
Their intent? To bring financial aid and assistance to the sick, disabled and needy members and their families.
