Title: FATHER MICHAEL MCGIVNEY: THE STORY OF THE PRIEST WHO FOUNDED THE KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS
This document brings to life the story of one of America's most extraordinary Catholic priests. Born in Connecticut of Irish immigrant parents just few a years before the Civil War, Michael McGivney grew up at a time when millions of Catholic immigrants were struggling to overcome poverty and prejudice. Embroiled to care for families threatened by the death of the breadwinner, Fr. McGivney founded the Knights of Columbus, a mutual benefit society that today remains the world's largest catholic lay organization with 1.8 million members in 13 nations. This film offers a rare glimpse into the life of an extraordinary priest and visionary leader who may very well become America's first canonized parish priest. 57 minutes.
