The Knights of Columbus was founded by an Irish-American Catholic priest, The Venerable Father Michael J. McGivney in New Haven, Connecticut. He gathered a group of men from St. Mary's parish for an organizational meeting on October 2, 1881 and the Order was incorporated under the laws of the U.S. state of Connecticut on March 29, 1882. Though the first councils were all in that state, the Order spread throughout New England and the United States in subsequent years.
The primary motivation for the Order was to be a mutual benefit society.
KofC business meetings are the first Tuesday of each month at 7pm in the Marian Room of the Parish Hall.
Our local chapter (#13389) of the Knights of Columbus Council 13389 was chartered in 2003 under the guidence of Past District Deputy, Past Grand Knight, Sir Knight John Kania.
If you are a practical Catholic man, age 18 or older, we welcome you to join the leading organization of Catholic laymen.
Being a Knight is more than camaraderie; it is being involved with your community; it is supporting your local Catholic Church, while enhancing your own faith; it is about protecting and enhancing your family life. Come see just what we are all about and take the first steps to enhance your personal life.
The Knights of Columbus St. Therese Council #13389 was founded on the principals of Charity-Unity-Fraternity-Patriotism. St. Therese Council is very active in the Parish and sponsors many church and school events.
Our council meets every first Tuesday of the Month (unless otherwise posted) at 7:00PM at Little Flower Parish Hall.
