Where Could I Go But To The Lord, by Elvis Presley
“In service to one, in service to all.”
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”
OUR HISTORY AND HERITAGE
Founded on the principles of charity, unity and fraternity, the Knights of Columbus was established in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven, Conn., and a group of parishioners. Their intent? To bring financial aid and assistance to the sick, disabled and needy members and their families.
Today, Father McGivney is being considered for sainthood.
“For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
