The Knights of Columbus (Knights) was founded by the Assistant Pastor of St. Mary’s Church, Father Michael J. McGivney and some of his parishioners in New Haven, Connecticut on March 29, 1882. The Knights were officially chartered as a Fraternal Benefit Society. From the moment of our founding, charity has been the first principle of the Knights.
The Knights have grown from several members in one council to over 15,000 councils and 1.9 million members. The Order has also contributed time and energy worldwide to service communities throughout the United States and the world.
The Regina Mundi Council #4052 of the Knights was chartered in 1955 and has been serving the community of the Assumption BVM Church and its parishioners in Feasterville, PA since its founding. The council has over 100 members.
All the good works we do are informed by our four core principles:
Some of our Council activities include:
Membership in the Knights of Columbus is open to men 18 years of age or older who are practical Catholics in union with the Holy See. A practical Catholic is one who lives up to the Commandments of God and the precepts of the Church. Meetings are open to members in good standing and are held on the first Thursday of the month in the Knights’ Hall located by the sports fields across from the Assumption BVM Gym. There are also brochures in the parish information center in the vestibule of the church, 1900 Meadowbrook Road, Feasterville, PA 19053.
