Protect Your Family

The history of the Knights of Columbus is a tale of resilience, solidarity, and a profound commitment to the welfare of others, particularly in the face of adversity and oppression.

Founded by Father Michael J. McGivney in 1882, the Knights of Columbus began as a mutual aid society for Catholic men, aimed at providing financial support for members and their families in times of sickness, death, or other hardships. Father McGivney's vision was revolutionary. He recognized the dire circumstances faced by many Catholic families, especially the plight of widows and orphans left destitute following the death of the family breadwinner. At that time, the loss of the family head often plunged a family into financial ruin, with few social safety nets available.

The insurance service established by the Knights was revolutionary in its approach. It wasn't just a business; it was a lifeline, a manifestation of the principle that we are our brother's keeper. The Knights extended a hand to those in need, ensuring that the families of deceased members would not be left in financial despair. This program was one of the first of its kind, paving the way for the modern insurance industry, but more importantly, it symbolized a commitment to mutual aid and compassion.
