Father Michael J. McGivney’s vision was to create a Fraternal Society of Catholic men in the state of Connecticut that would pay $5.00 per week for members who were sick and $1,000 dollar death benefit once the order reached 1,000 members.

On October 2nd, 1881 the first meeting held at Saint Mary’s in New Haven, Connecticut led by Father Michael J. McGivney with about 80 men in attendance.  The first headquarters were at the Law Offices of Driscol and Asher.

On February 2nd, 1882 the name, “Knights of Columbus”, was adopted by the Supreme Council.  The first Supreme Knight was James T. Mullen and the first Supreme Chaplain was Reverent Patrick Lawlor.  Father Michael J. McGivney served as the first Supreme Corresponding Secretary.

The Knights of Columbus was granted legal status as a corporation in the state of Connecticut on March 29th, 1882.  Membership requirements were a Catholic Man between the ages of 18 and 50.  Motto was Charity and Unity.  Council #1, named San Salvador, was formed in New Haven, Connecticut on May 15th, 1882.
