Some of the activities
for K of C Council 14959 are:
The Knights of Columbus (K of C) was founded by Father Michael J. McGivney in New Haven, Connecticut in March 1882 based upon the founding principles of charity, unity and fraternity. The K of C has grown from several members in one council to more than 14,000 councils and 1.8 million members throughout the United States and 13 other countries. The Knights formed originally to render financial aid to members and their families. The Knights now provide time, energy, aid and assistance to sick, disabled and needy members, their families, parishes and communities. The history of the Order shows how the foresight of Father Michael J. McGivney, whose cause for sainthood is being investigated by the Vatican, brought about what has become the world's foremost Catholic fraternal benefit society.
