Father Michael J. McGivney founded the Knights of Columbus as a fraternal benefit society at a time in the United States when Catholic immigrants were being forced to renounce their Faith in order to earn a livelihood for their families. Our mission as Knights of Columbus, is to keep Father McGivney's dream alive, to actively seek out Catholic men and invite them to be a part of our community of Christian family life through participation in our social and fraternal programs of service to our Church, community, and youth.
