Knights of Columbus
The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic men's fraternal organization. Thanks to the efforts of Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven and some of his parishioners, the Connecticut state legislature on March 29, 1882, officially chartered the Knights of Columbus as a fraternal benefit society. The Order is still true to its founding principles of charity, unity and fraternity.
There are two councils that serve the community of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
The Walter Pollard Council #5480 is a regional council serving the Newport News parishes.
The San Francisco de Assis #11781 is a regional council serving the Hispanic community of Newport News.
