Blessed Michael McGivney

From the moment Blessed Father Michael McGivney launched the Knights of Columbus, the Order has remained true to its founder’s vision of fortifying Catholics in their faith and providing for orphans and widows.

This morning, the founder of the Knights of Columbus, Father Michael McGivney of New Haven, Connecticut, was declared Blessed Michael McGivney. We rejoice!

His Feast day is Aug 13.
