De La Salle Knights of Columbus Council 590

Welcome

Thanks to the vision of Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven, Connecticut on March 29, 1882, the Knights of Columbus was officially chartered as a fraternal benefit society. The Order 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.

The Knights of Columbus has grown to more than 15,000 councils and 1.8 million members.

STATE of THE COUNCIL

Our membership numbers are going down. We presently have 874 members down 10 from last month

433 Associate, 270 insurance, 171 inactive, 55 honorary, 305 honorary life and 3 disabled

Taking a closer look honorary life, disable and inactive members do not pay due so if you do the math we have 405 dues paying members  55 are honorary and only pay $10.00 so that means we have 350 members that pay full dues. 50% of our council is non- paying members. So far this year only 107 members have paid dues that means 143 members have not paid their dues.

Why do I tell you this? We are getting older and need more young members it is all of our responsibility to recruit new members. The Council needs help in setting up a church drive WE NEED MAN POWER you as brother knights MUST help in this effort if we are to survive. Past Grand Knight Mike Humphreys is our retention chairman you can contact him at michaelfhumphreys@comcast.net he cannot do this job alone. We have over 45 men that at behind in their dues and in risk of suspension WE MUST GET TO THESE MEN AND TRY TO SAVE THEM. Contact Mike help him in this effort.
