St. Isaac Jogues
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 KofC 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 provide a supportive network of Catholic men, who, in accordance with the principles of our Faith provide works of charity to benefit our parish priests, fellow members and their families and the needs of our community.
To be leaders of our Catholic Faith who inspire the men of our Parish to join us as Brother Knights.
