Knights of Columbus
Thanks to the efforts of Father Michael 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. Natural aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Mutual and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works.
At St. Paul Parish, the Knights of Columbus exist under the title “K of C Pope John XXIII Council # 7104.” The Council House is located at 114 Rte 9W in Congers. Meetings are on the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month, and the Council is open to new membership.
The Knights can be reached at: (845) 268-0106.
