The Knights of Columbus was founded by Servant of God Father Michael McGivney in in the year 1882 in New Haven Connecticut. Father McGivney was moved by two main issues of his day. The first was fact that when fathers died their wives and children often became destitute victims of the times. The second issue was Catholic men not leading good Catholic lives and joining various “secret” societies which did not promote a good Catholic life.
The result today is that the Knights of Columbus is one of the most highly rated insurance organization in the world. Almost two million men are Knights of Columbus and form one of the most effective charitable organizations in the world.
