IWKnights Corner for June 12, 2022The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

Did you know this about the IW Knights of Columbus? 

Over the next several weeks we will review the growth of our Order. “Service and charity are at the heart of the Knights.  Founded to meet the needs of immigrants, refugees and families suffering from the death of a breadwinner, the Knights began as a small service organization and has grown into a worldwide financial and charitable organization.”

OUR HISTORY

OUR FOUNDING
1882-1899

The Knights of Columbus is founded by Father Michael J. McGivney on Feb. 6, 1882 with a mission of charity.

FLEDGLING TO THRIVING
1900-1909

The fledgling Order grows dramatically at the beginning of the 20th century to serve communities beyond the United States.

EVERYBODY WELCOME
1910-1918

During the Great War, Knights of Columbus Huts provide services under the motto "Everybody Welcome, Everything Free" - a philosophy upheld in today's charitable programs.
