Thanks to the efforts of Father Michael J McGivney, assistant pastor of
St. Mary's 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 Order is still true to its founding principles of charity,
unity and fraternity.
We encorage you to visit our website often and review the many charitable and service programs and activities of our Council. You might also get a better feel for how the Knights of Columbus has served those in need. If interested in joining, you can view a few short videos, put together by our State Council.
Upcoming events(yard sales)
Evening. The cold weather has set in and the smell of fresh Turkey is
in the air with Thanksgiving so very close. Jim McFarland has
organized out Keep Christ In Our Hearts Christmas program again this
year with some spectacular items to sell. He has scheduled the
dates in each parish and now needs the bodies to make the program a
success. This is a fund raiser for the Council and its primary
goal is to bring Christ into the Homes of all who celebrate Christ at
Christmas and entice those that fallen away from Christ to bring Christ
back to their hearts.
