Knights of Columbus
The St. Paul the Apostle Knights of Columbus will be hosting the annual Single Seniors Luncheon on Sunday June 5 from noon – 2pm. The luncheon will feature chicken cordon bleu with entertainment provided. All unmarried senior citizens, men and women, are invited. There is no charge, however reservations are being taken in the Narthex today for planning purposes.
On March 29, 1882, the Connecticut state legislature officially chartered the Knights of Columbus, a fraternal benefit society founded by Father Michael J. McGivney with a group of parishioners in the basement of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven. Still true to its founding principles of charity, unity, and fraternity 125 years later, the Knights of Columbus has grown to the largest lay Catholic organization in the world with more than 1.7 million members.
Throughout its history, the Knights of Columbus has been an effective advocate and defender of civil and religious rights for all. The organization has also contributed billions of dollars and millions of hours of volunteer service to charity. This site recalls many prominent events in the Knights of Columbus’ history and offers the Supreme Knight’s view for its future.
The St. Paul the Apostle Council (#13236) meets on the first Thursday of the month at 7:30 P.M. in room N. Contact: Tim Joseph at 545-9465 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
