Knights of Columbus

Joe Camolli
Grand Knight
Twelve Apostles Council #5001

In 1882 a priest named Father Michael J. McGivney gathered a small group of Catholic men together in St. Mary's Church in New Haven, Ct.. That group formed a fraternal benefits society to provide insurance for the widows of it's members while offering fellowship among Catholic men. That Group became known as the Knights of Columbus. Today the Knights of Columbus has grown to more than 1.7 milloin members located in over 14,000 councils throughout the world. Each year members of this organization donate more than 64 million volunteer hours and over $145 million dollars to charitable and church causes. The Knights of Columbus Councils provide a wide variety of opportunities for members and their families that are enjoyable and that benefit not only the Church but the community as a whole. We are practicing Catholic men who come together to support our church and parish community.Won't you join us?
