The Knights of Columbus is a fraternal benefit society with over 1.8 million members in 14,000 councils throughout the United States, Canada, the Philippines, Mexico, Poland, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Panama, the Bahamas, the Virgin Islands, Cuba, Guatemala, Guam and Saipan. Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven Connecticut, founded the Order in 1882 and the Order is still true to its founding principles of charity, unity, and fraternity.
The Regina Mundi Council #4052 was chartered in 1955 and has been serving Assumption BVM Parish and the community since its founding. There are almost 100 members. Some serve the parish in various roles including Pastor, Deacon, Sacristans, Ushers, Lectors, and Extraordinary Ministers. The Knights of Columbus supports the Catholic Church’s culture of life.
Some of our Council activities include:
Membership in the Knights of Columbus is open to men 18 years of age or older who are practical (that is, practicing) Catholics in union with the Holy See. Meetings are only open to members in good standing and are held on the first Thursday of the month in the Knights’ Hall located by the sports fields across from the Gym. There are also brochures in the parish information center in the vestibule of the church. You can also visit the main Knights of Columbus website at: http://www.kofc.org/en/index.html.
