On October 2, 1881 a group of men met in the basement of St. Mary’s Church on Hillhouse Avenue in New Haven, Connecticut. Called together by their 29-year-old parish priest, Father Michael J. McGivney, these men formed a fraternal society that would one day become the world’s largest Catholic family fraternal service organization.
If you are a practical Catholic man, 18 years of age or older, join one of the oldest Catholic fraternal mens organizations in America. Consider joining us and making life-long friends while helping others.
