About Us

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.

Our parish mission is:  We strive to imitate the heart of our patroness, the Blessed Virgin Mary, by: Loving God with all our hearts, Loving our neighbor as ourselves and Bringing Christ to others. This is the essence of the Legion of Mary. Our Blessed Mother gives graces and gifts as she desires. We must answer the call. We are called to serve, to act with humility, patience and obedience. God has blessed us with eternal life and also our Blessed Mother. He continues to bless us through her graces. We must be obedient and do her work, wherever it takes us. We can do this by looking to Our Mother as our strength and our help. This is how we can truly answer the call of our Blessed Mother. Is the Blessed Mother calling you? For more information, call Beverly Brown at 785-272-2187 or Niashia Baker at 785-554-4129
