Knights of Columbus - New Iberia Council 1208

Knights of Columbus - New Iberia Council 1208 Venerable Fr. Michael J. McGivney, the 29 year old priest of St. Mary's Church in New Haven, CT, called together a group of men to meet on October 2, 1881 to form a fraternal organization to provide for the widows and orphans of deceased members.

The Knights of Columbus was established in 1882 to provide a means by which Catholic men could support the Catholic Church, provide financial protection to protect their families, and engage in works of charity to benefit the less fortunate. New Iberia Council 1208 was established on February 24, 1907. The Council currently has 136 members.

Mission: Today, its nearly 1.8 million members make up the largest Catholic lay organization in the world, its insurance program has $74 billion of life insurance in force, and last year Knights donated more than $150 million and volunteered 68 million hours of their time to charity. From helping children in need to providing wheelchairs for the physically disabled and support for the intellectually handicapped, from helping to stock food banks to offering top-rated and affordable life insurance to its members, the Knights has been at the service of the communities in which we live and the needy around the world for more than 127 years.

From the Louisiana State Council:

We are again being recognized for the great work we do in our jurisdiction. Louisiana's Family of the Year entry was number 5 in the top 5 and out of the 73 jurisdictions. Brother Darryl Barrios and his family has been contacted by Supreme and the Website, "Father's for Good" for an interview that will be published in the near future. This is proof positive, that there are great families that need to be recognized by their Council for Family of the Year. As a reminder, please honor a family in your Council and fill out the nomination form with their information. It could be someone in your Council that could be Family of the Year at State Convention, or even at Supreme Convention! Congratulations again to the Darryl Barrios Family!
