OUR HISTORY AND HERITAGE
We are in British Columbia and Yukon; the State Council is in its 110th year, with 134 Councils and growing with over 12009 members. We are in Canada, on the West Coast, North of Washington, East of Alaska.
Our order was founded on the principles of charity, unity and fraternity, the Knights of Columbus was established in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven, Conn., and a group of parishioners. Their intent? To bring financial aid and assistance to the sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Today, Blessed Michael McGivney is being considered for sainthood.
