About us

Founded in 1882 by Fr. Michael J. McGivney, at St. Mary’s Parish in New Haven, Connecticut, the Knights of Columbus is a Catholic fraternity centered on Catholic teachings, and founding principles of Charity, Unity, Fraternity & Patriotism. With approximately 15,000 councils around the world, and membership nearing 2 million, the order has become a visible symbol of the response of Catholic men around the world, to our call to humble service of those most in need.

Because of his great work, our founder Father Michael McGivney is officially being beatified on October 31st 2020.
