  • St. Mary’s Church in New Haven, CT is the church where Fr. Michael J. McGivney founded the Knights in 1882 and the place where he is interred. The church, near Yale University, will be the focal point of a weekend-long celebration beginning this Friday, October 30th as Fr. McGivney will be beatified, a major step on his way to being proclaimed a saint.

    The beatification ceremony of Fr. Michael McGivney will take place in St. Joseph’s Cathedral in Hartford, Connecticut, Saturday, October 31, but St. Mary’s Church in New Haven, CT will host a number of events on Friday, Saturday and Sunday in what it is being billed as the St. Mary’s McGivney Festival. Visitors will see a church that is much the same as it was when Fr. McGivney was an assistant pastor there from 1878-1884.
