Thanks to the efforts of Father J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary's Church in New Haven and some of his parishioners, the Connecticut state legislature on March 29, 1882, officially chartered the Knights of Columbus as a fraternal benefit society.  The Order is still true to its founding principles of charity, unity, and fraternity.

The Knights was formed to render financial aid to members and their families.  Mutual aid and assistance are offered for sick, disabled, and needy members and their families.  Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief, and public relief works.

Founded June 18th, 1908
