Congratulations to Knights of Columbus Brothers Chris Huelsman and Jim Kuchenbrod who recently were elevated to 4th Degree Knight. Brothers Jim Sefcovic and Hobert McGuire, who had previously attended an online virtual exemplification were also Knighted by the sword. The ceremony was held at a Mass at St. Michael's Church with Archbishop Kurtz presiding. Congratulations again!
St. Gabriel Council #15699
Together, we’re empowering Catholic men to live their faith at home, in their parish, at work and in their community.
OUR HISTORY AND HERITAGE
Founded on the principles of charity, unity and fraternity, the Knights of Columbus was established in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary's Church in New Haven, Conn., and a group of parishioners. Their intent? To bring financial aid and assistance to the sick, disabled and needy members and their families.
Father McGivney is now considered "Blessed" and is a step away from sainthood.
