The Knights of Columbus was organized as a fraternal benefit society in New Haven, CT, in 1882 by the Reverend Michael Joseph McGivney, a curate at St. Mary's Parish in New Haven, and a small group of Catholic men. The primary purpose of providing protection for the families of its members.

The Charter, granted by the State of Connecticut on March 29, 1882, has been amended to state:

"the purposes for which said corporation is formed are the following:

(a) of rendering pecuniary aid to its members and beneficiaries of members;

(b) of rendering mutual aid and assistance to its sick, disabled and needy members;

(c) of promoting social and intellectual interaction among its members; and

(d) of promoting and conducting educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and welfare and public relief work."

Whenever and wherever there is a need for the strength available in an organized body of loyal Catholic laymen, the Knights of Columbus, by the very nature of its organization, is able to respond quickly and efficiently.
