First-Class Relic of Knights Founder at Seminary April 28


A first-class bone relic of Blessed Michael McGivney, a Connecticut priest and founder of the Knights of Columbus, will be available for public veneration Thursday, April 28, from 7:30 to 9 p.m. at St. Joseph’s Seminary in Dunwoodie.

An address by Brian Caulfield, vice postulator for the canonization cause of Blessed McGivney, will cover: the life and virtues of Father McGivney, who was beatified in October 2020; why the reasons he founded the Knights of Columbus remain relevant; what Father McGivney means for priests today; how his example can inspire the laity in their vital role; the pro-life miracle that led to his beatification and what one can do to promote his cause.
