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.

The Rosary had its origin in the liturgical mentality of former ages. Even at the present time it is called “Mary’s Psalter.”
There still are Catholics who consider the 150 Hail Marys a substitute for the 150 psalms for those persons who neither
have the time, the education, nor the opportunity to pray the Hours of the Divine Office. Thus “Mary’s Psalter” is a
shortened, simplified “breviary” - alongside the common Hour-prayer of the Church.

—The Church’s Year of Grace, Dr. Pius Parsch
The Rosary is Christocentric setting forth the entire life of Jesus Christ, the passion, death, resurrection and glory. Of
course, the Rosary honors and contemplates Mary too, and rightly so, for the same reason that the Liturgical Year does
likewise: "Because of the mission she received from God, her life is most closely linked with the mysteries of Jesus
Christ, and there is no one who has followed in the footsteps of the Incarnate Word more closely and with more merit
than she"142 (Mediator Dei). Meditation on this cycle of Joyful, Sorrowful, Glorious and Luminous Mysteries makes
the Rosary not only "a breviary or summary of the Gospel and of Christian life,"(Ingravescentibus malis) but also a compendium of the Liturgical Year. Therewith the Rosary stands revealed as a dynamic teacher and nurturer of Chris-
tian faith, morality, and spiritual perfection, fostering in various ways faith, hope, charity, and the other virtues, and me-
diating special graces, all to the end that all to the end that we may become more and more like unto Christ.
