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.
The Knights of Columbus organization was formed to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief, and public relief works.’
To learn more about Knights of Columbus please visit the Knights of Columbus National Website or the Knights of Columbus Our Lady of Grace Website.
The Knights of Columbus have been very instrumental in assisting our parish in many endeavors over the years and provide our annual Pumpkin Patch.
We have monthly meetings usually on the first Tuesday of the month.
