knights of columbus in their regalia

Thanks to the efforts of Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of Saint 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.
