In addition to the help we give to the community, we also have several social events throughout the year such as our Christmas party, cook outs, and the social we have after our monthly meeting.

We meet every second Monday of the month at 6:30 PM in the hospitality room next to the bell tower at the Church of the Resurrection and are guided by our principles of charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism. Check out the faith in action programs that we offer to help our community and start getting involved. Also periodically check out our calendar to see what events are coming up soon.

About Blessed Michael J. McGivney


In the late 19th century, North America was experiencing an influx of people from all over the world, particularly Europe. Many people were relegated to living in unsanitary conditions, and performing hazardous jobs for poor pay. Such was life for Catholics in New Haven, Connecticut.

The untimely death of the family breadwinner often devastated a family. In 1882, a young Catholic priest, Father Michael J. McGivney, curate at St. Mary's Church in New Haven, envisioned an organization to help Catholic families deal with this crisis. Out of his vision the Knights of Columbus was founded. We are currently the largest Catholic, family, fraternal organization in the world.
