About the Knights
The Knightsof Columbus was founded on March 29,1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney and a small group of his parishioners in New Haven, Connecticut.
Today, the membership is limited to men at least eighteen years of age, that stand firmly on the principles of Charity, Unity, Faternity and Patriotism and spiritually in alignment with the Holy See. Its members are committed to the sanctity of human life and stand firmly in defense of family and in support of the priesthood.
