Founder’s Day

Today, Holy Thursday 2018, we also commemorate Father Michael J. McGivney and the Knights of Columbus on Founder’s Day.

As we celebrate the legacy of Venerable Michael McGivney and the contributions of our brother Knights since 1882, we also prepare for an even greater future as we live out the vision of our founder.

The anniversary of the realization of Father McGivney’s dream is a cause for celebration.

Councils throughout the Order are urged to observe this day – among their own members and with the community at large – as a reminder of what the Knights of Columbus has accomplished in the past years, the ideals of the Order, and their own local achievements.
