The Knights of Columbus was organized as a fraternal benefit society in New Haven, Connecticut in 1882 by the Rev. Michael McGivney.  The purpose of this fraternal order of laymen is to support the Church and the country by means of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism.  It works tirelessly to reach out to widows and orphans, defending the unborn and aged, providing assistance to the hungry, the homeless, those physically and mentally challenged, and for vocations to ministry within the Church.  Membership is open to men of 18 years or older who are practicing Catholics.

Guardian Angels is home to our local Father Lynch Council #4188.   Men interested in joining the Knights of Columbus can contact Grand Knight Terry Clayton by email at  or call 248-795-9698. Go to to join online.
