2018 Veterans Day

Veterans Day and Remembrance Day are opportunities to remember the sacrifices made by each and every member of the American Armed Forces and Canadian Armed Services — including so many brother Knights — who have served or who are serving now and who bear the wounds of war. 

To these brave men and women we say thank you for your service. Please join us in a moment of silence to pray for each of them, especially those wounded and ill warriors still suffering for our freedom. 

 

This Veterans Day we also remember our brother Knights who have earned the Medal of Honor for their heroic bravery while serving in the armed forces. In addition, we continue to support veterans through our Warriors to Lourdes program, sponsored in partnership with the Archdiocese for Military Services, USA. If you would like to join us in supporting a veteran’s journey of faith, click here

 

Mary, Immaculate Virgin, Our Mother, 

please pray to your Son, Our Lord,

 for our warriors and our veterans,

 for our countries and our continued freedom. Amen.

Founder's Day 2017

On March 29, 1882, the Knights of Columbus received official recognition as a fraternal benefit society. Now, 135 years later, the Knights of Columbus remembers the lasting impact its founder, Venerable Father Michael McGivney, has made on countless men, women and children helped by the Order. 

 

Today, as we remember Father McGivney's legacy with Founder's Day celebrations throughout the world, we invite you to join the Father Michael J. McGivney Guild.

 

The intentions of guild members are included in weekly Masses, periodic special Masses and novenas. Members also receive a regular newsletter and more.

 

To join the guild, visit fathermcgivney.org.
