In 1882, the fraternal benefit society of the Knights of Columbus was founded thanks to the efforts of Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary's Church in New Haven, Connecticut and several of his parishioners. Today, Knights are still true to their founding principles of CHARITY, UNITY, FRATERNITY and PATRIOTISM.
Council #4742 continues to support the the legacy of Father McGivney's vision shown in the charitable projects and financial contributions made on a regular basis to many groups and causes. A regular General Meeting is held the Third Wednesday of each month to decide upon projects and donations that benefit both our Church and Community.
