Becoming a Member of Council 8773
BECOMING A MEMBER OF COUNCIL 8773
The Knights of Columbus is an organization of men of faith, with over 1.6 million members worldwide. In 1882, Father Michael J. McGivney invited a small group of parishioners to gather in the basement of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven, Connecticut. His goal was simple—to establish an Order that would unite men in their faith as well as help provide for Catholic families in times of need. Guided by four core principles—charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism—these founding members strove to overcome the hardships of the time, including poverty, unemployment and even persecution. Father McGivney’s perseverance and foresight resulted in the largest Catholic fraternal and humanitarian organization ever created.
Today, the members of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Council 8773 continue to work for the betterment of the Parish, the Church, the community, and themselves. Becoming a member of our council gives a man fellowship, and it also gives him a real sense of belonging to something much bigger than himself. A man will find no truer and more loyal friends than his Brother Knights.
The additional benefits of membership are many, including access to top-rated insurance and financial products, as well as the opportunity to build personal leadership skills, public speaking ability, and organization skills.
Membership in the Knights of Columbus is open to any Catholic man who has attained the age of 18 years and follows the teachings of the Pope and the precepts of our holy Church.
