Fraternal Benefits – January Newsletter

Why Don’t You Belong?

In 1882, our Order’s founder, Fr. Michael J. McGiveny, had the awesome responsibility of finding a way of providing financial security to the many husbands, widows and orphans of the Catholic immigrants coming into the United States. What Fr. McGivney did was to ask each parishioner to contribute whatever they could toward a special fund that would be used for the benefit of a fellow parishioner who became ill, disabled or died. When the fund was depleted, the “hat” was passed around again. This idea of providing financial security, at a time when it is most needed, was the primary reason for the founding of the Knights of Columbus.

Our Order has never lost sight of this original goal. Today, Fr. McGiveny’s dream is realized through the insurance arm of our fraternity. Our Life Insurance program is the envy of the industry. We have consistently been awarded the highest accolades. Our programs are available to all Brother Knights, their spouses and their children; under the age of 18. Furthermore, a portion of every dollar that is spent on life insurance premiums with the Order is funneled right back into the Catholic Church and the Knights of Columbus itself.

You joined the Knights of Columbus because you believed in the good works and morality of the Order. Our insurance program is run “by Brother Knights, for Brother Knights and their families.” Since everyone has a need for life insurance, why not let the Order you trust — be your life insurance provider. There is nothing better you could do to protect yourself and your loved ones. Your participation safeguards your family, supports the Order and the ideals you believe in and benefits Holy Mother Church! What a wonderful fraternal benefit!

Give me a call. I’ll arrange a convenient time to talk about our life insurance, long term care insurance, annuities and retirement programs.

From my family to your family…. I wish you a Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous New Year!!
