Knights of Columbus Fraternal Officer Training
Promoting Vision on Founders’ Day (and the rest of the year too!)
Founders’ Day is just one day a year, and a great time to tell everyone what your council is doing the rest of the year, to help people. Knikghts of Columbus councils, since the time of our Order’s founding, have actively responded to the most pressing issues facing people in our parishes and communities. Conducting charitable outreach projects provides an attractive vehicle to put your faith into action. What are you doing to spread the good news?
In this 1-hour presentation, we’ll cover, today’s response to Father Michael McGivney’s vision in 1882:
- Attracting and Retaining member by Charitable Outreach
- Promoting Fraternal Benefits that make a difference
- Involving members, families, and parishioners in the sacramental life of our Church
The Knights of Columbus was founded by Venerable Servant of God Father Michael McGivney, a New Haven parish priest, in 1882. The organization was formed to provide charitable outreach and care for the financial well being of Catholic families, focusing on the protection of widows and orphans, and on strengthening the faith of its members. It has grown into the world’s largest lay Catholic organization, with more than 1.9 million members throughout North and Central America, the Philippines, the Caribbean and Europe. The enormous force for good of the nearly 15,000 Knights of Columbus councils donated more than $1.5 billion and 682 million hours of service over the last decade to various charitable causes.
