Father McGivney Gallery

Memorial Chalice

The McGivney Memorial Chalice was commissioned by the Knights of Columbus to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the death of its founder, Father Michael J. McGivney.

Crafted by Giansanti Artistic Jewelers in Rome, the node of the chalice is in the form of a globe depicting the old and new worlds, signifying that Christopher Columbus brought the faith from Europe on his voyage of discovery in 1492.

The chalice was first used at the Memorial Mass during the 108th Supreme Council meeting, San Antonio, on Aug. 9, 1990.
