What are the Knights of Columbus ?
The Knights of Columbus is the world’s largest Catholic fraternal service organization. Founded by Father Michael J. McGivney in New Haven, Connecticut, in 1882, it was named in honor of the mariner Christopher Columbus. Originally serving as a mutual benefit society to low-income immigrant Catholics, it developed into a fraternal benefit society dedicated to providing charitable services, promoting Catholic education and Catholic public policy positions, and actively defending Roman Catholicism in various nations.
You may know us for our Fish Fry’s and Pancake Breakfasts, but our support for St. Agnes comes in many different ways. From supporting our youth through Quilt Raffles to maintenance projects around the church, we raise money to help in anyway we can for the praise of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are proud of our Catholic heritage and we pray that our acts help make our world a better place.
