Founded by Father Michael J. McGivney of New Haven, CT on March 29, 1882, the Knights of Columbus is still true to its founding principles of charity, unity and fraternity. The Knights was formed to render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works.
A particular ministry of the Knights is to encourage Church vocations. Through the Knights of Columbus Refund Support Vocations Program (RSVP), councils, assemblies and Squires circles “adopt” one or more seminarians or postulants and provide them with financial assistance and moral support.
The Ladies’ Guild is not only a social organization, but is designed to specifically meet the needs of Mary, Queen of Peace parish by decorating and beautifying the church and holding fund-raisers for the guild and other ministries. They purchase items which our church needs to grow and to serve the community. They are also famous for sponsoring socials throughout the year which encourage Christian community. Meetings are on the first Tuesday of each month at in the church hall.
