Knights of Columbus was established due to the efforts of Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven on March 29, 1882, and it was officially chartered the Knights of Columbus as a fraternal benefit society. The Order is based on its founding principles of charity, unity and fraternity.
The Knights of Columbus (KOC) Council of St. Benedict of Nursia was formed in 2017. As part of the new church in Milton, Ontario, the Knights of Columbus (16746) will be working closely with the local people in the community on its principles of charity and unity.
The KOC will be meeting every 3rd Tuesday of the month and are always looking for more members to join this wonderful growing council.
