"Keeping Christ in Christmas"

The Knights of Columbus is an organization of catholic men that began in 1882 by Fr. Michael J. McGivney in New Haven, CT.  He formed this organization to help the plight of catholic families of the day and especially to give them some recourse if the husband--typically the primary breadwinner--passed away, usually through harsh work environments. 

Today the Knights of Columbus is the largest catholic fraternal orgainization in the world at 1.9 million members.  Its goal is to serve their parishes, support the families of the fallen, and help the communities in which they are located.

The K-of-C also has one of the largest, private insurance companies (i.e. no Wall Street stockholders) in the world, the protection from which is only available to its members.  With a AAA rating and over $100 BILLION in strength, it can guarantee significant annuity investments and protect the families of fallen members.

If you have any questions or interested in membership please feel free to contact Grand Knight Jay Niland Thank You!
