Knights of Columbus - Happy Anniversary !

Just heard a great talk show on my Sirius Radio, on the drive home today. EWTN, channel 160 was airing an episode of Catholic Answers with Patrick Madrid as host.
You can catch the show Here...(Monday Oct 2 - Guest Douglas Brinkley)

The show was on the Knights of Columbus and Douglas Brinkley was the guest. Doug is the author of a new book on the K of C and it's founder Father McGivney.

The book is entitled "Parish Priest-Father McGivney and American Catholicism"

"On Oct. 2, 1881, a small group of men met in the basement of St. Mary's Church on Hillhouse Avenue in New Haven, Connecticut. Called together by their 29-year-old parish priest, Father Michael J. McGivney, these men formed a fraternal society that would one day become the world's largest Catholic family fraternal service organization." The Knights of Columbus.

This Holy Priest did quite a bit and had a major influence on world charities and organizing men in communities across the U.S. .
