The Feast of Blessed Michael McGivney

Brother Knights - 

Today, Friday August 13, is the first feast day of Knights founder, Blessed Michael McGivney, who was beatified last fall. 

His feast day falls between Blessed McGivney's date of birth, August 13, 1852, and his date of death, August 14, 1890. 

We encourage Knights to try and attend a Traditional Latin Mass today. Although he is not on the 1962 calendar, August 13 is a ferial day and a votive Mass for Any Necessity can be offered for Blessed McGivney's canonization. 

To learn more about Blessed McGivney, the Knights of Columbus has set up a resource page:
