Pope John Paul II
"While it is true that the taking of life not yet born or in its final stages is sometimes marked by a mistaken sense of altruism and human compassion it cannot be denied that such a culture of death, taken as a whole, betrays a completely individualistic concept of freedom, which ends up by becoming the freedom of "the strong" against the weak who have no choice but to submit. "

"...In the broadest terms The Knights of Columbus can be accurately depicted with the following description: Thanks to the efforts of Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary's Church in New Haven and some of his parishioners, the Connecticut state legislature on March 29, 1882, officially chartered the Knights of Columbus as a fraternal benefit society. The Order is still true to its founding principles of charity, unity and fraternity.
All the good works we do are informed by our four core principles:
These are principles we cherish and live by in our council #5890.
Remember our Catholicism was something that was bestowed on us by our parents, for the most part. Lets perpetuate that theme and turn it over to the children, our future. Along the way you will see what that journey provides each of us involved in the Knights. There is no finer feeling than providing help to those most in need, (Charity). Each one of us brother Knights, has a strength that benefits the council. Having said that, it must be acknowledged that we each also have weaknesses. With a combination of our brother Knights (Unity) we are able to put together the WHOLE package! The greatest benefit for me is the knowledge that should something happen to me, the Knights will be there for my family in their time of need (Fraternity). Here in Washingtonville we have the Monsignor Foley Assembly of 4th degree members. All of our brother Knights should aspire to achieve the 4th degree. This is our Patriotic degree (Patriotism).
If you are a catholic gentleman, and see yourself living your life with the "core principles" of our brotherhood. Please speak to one of us. If you are a catholic gentleman and are looking to enrich your life, speak to one of us... If you are a catholic gentleman and you are desirous of passing it on to our youth, pleae speak to one of us. We are always looking for worthy applicants. Our goal is to be a stalwart to the Catholic Church. We can't do it without your help.
