Knights of Columbus

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 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.

The history of the Order shows how the foresight of Father Michael J. McGivney, whose cause for sainthood is being investigated by the Vatican, brought about what has become the world's foremost Catholic fraternal benefit society. The Order has helped families obtain economic security and stability through its life insurance, annuity and long-term care programs, and has contributed time and energy worldwide to service in communities.

The Knights of Columbus has grown from several members in one council to more than 14,000 councils and 1.8 million members throughout the United States, Canada, the Philippines, Mexico, Poland, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Panama, the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, Cuba, Guatemala, Guam, Saipan, Lithuania, Ukraine, and South Korea.

Saint Peter and All Hallows Parish Knights of Columbus, Council 4443 is always looking for good men and their families to serve God and community, and we welcome all Catholic men over 18 to join us. The Knights of Columbus many times are a behind the scenes group. Frequently the Knights are either setting up tables and chairs or putting the tables and chairs away. Knights of Columbus are involved in most events around the parish. If something breaks then usually it's one or more Knights that fix it. If you are a practicing Catholic over 18 years of age and you want to be "involved" with "happenings" at the Church , then join the Knights!!!

We raise and contribute funds to support the workings of our Holy Church and countless worthy causes in our Parish and around the world.

Become a Knight of Columbus. Expand your circle of friends at All Hallows and Saint Peter Parish and discover the satisfaction and blessing of giving of yourself.
