The purpose of the Knights of Columbus is to provide spiritual growth for its members, and opportunities for service to the parish and to the larger community. The Knights are very active with pancake breakfasts, various dinners, Pro-Life activities, the sale of Tootsie Rolls for people with intellectual disabilities and the Special Olympics, as well as maintenance around the church and grounds.
On February 2, 1882, while an assistant pastor at Saint Mary’s Church in New Haven, Connecticut, Father McGivney founded the Knights of Columbus with a small group of parishioners. Father McGivney died from pneumonia on the eve of the Assumption in 1890, when he was only thirty-eight years old. The order now has over 1.7 million member families and thirteen thousand councils.
