Beatification of Fr. Michael McGivney – founder of the Knights of Columbus

October 31st the founder of the Knights of Columbus Father Michael J McGivney will be beatified. Beatification is one step before sainthood. https://www.ncronline.org/…/beatification-father…

Father McGivney was a parish priest who in 1882 brought together a group of men to form the Knights of Columbus with a mission to help the church, community and the knight and his family. One hundred and thirty eight years later that mission is still continuing but now more than ever our church needs men to step up and join us to rebuild the church during and after this pandemic, help our communities where some towns are seeing record unemployment and once you join you an your family are eligible for a number of fraternal benefits. To top it off we will offer free membership for the first year. Contact Neal at 201-575-9984 or mcgarritye@aol.com or goto www.kofc.org/joinus indicate council 12769 and in promo code MCGIVNEY 2020. There will be an orderwide virtual exemplification to welcome men into the order on Nov 1st at 3 PM in Father McGivney’s honor.
