America's Next Blessed.
Pope Francis has approved announcement of a miracle attributed to the intercession of Knights of Columbus founder Father Michael J. McGivney (1852-1890) allowing for the priest to be beatified, a significant step on the path to sainthood.
The Grey Nuns and the Great Hunger
Description: During mid-19th century, some 100,000 Irish people fled to Canada to escape famine. In a strange land at journey’s end, however, were the Sisters of Charity of Montreal, a.k.a. the Grey Nuns, who aided the emigrants in their fear, despair and misery. In a free webinar, Dr. Jason King, a Montreal native and historian at Ireland’s National Famine Museum, will recall the Grey Nuns’ dedication in caring for the sick as well as widows and orphans left destitute and alone.
Voices For Freedom
This display, opened in February 2020, centers on two books written by the English abolitionist Thomas Clarkson (1760-1846). His writings were directed at ending the slave trade in the United Kingdom and encouraging other nations to do the same. The display includes items from the Knights of Columbus Museum and the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council Archives focusing on the period of segregation in the United States and the Civil Rights movement of the mid-20th century.
