Columbus Day Print

Father Michael J. McGivney, who founded the Knights of Columbus at St. Mary’s Church, chose Christopher Columbus as the Order’s patron. The Catholic explorer is revered as a man of vision, courage, and missionary spirit.

Columbus Day is a U.S. holiday that commemorates the landing of Christopher Columbus in the New World on October 12, 1492. It was unofficially celebrated in a number of cities and states as early as the 18th century but did not become a federal holiday until the 1937. For many, the holiday is a way of both honoring Columbus' achievements and celebrating Italian-American heritage.
