The Knights of Columbus announced plans to create a new pilgrimage center for visitors to encounter the spirituality of the order's founder, Fr. Michael McGivney, who is set to be beatified in October.
The Blessed Michael McGivney Pilgrimage Center will be created at the current Knights of Columbus Museum in New Haven, Connecticut.
Supreme Knight Carl Anderson said the center will offer pilgrims the opportunity to learn more about the group's founder.
"While the museum will continue to recount the Knights' history, it will also broaden its mission by focusing more on the spirituality and charitable vision of our founder and his legacy. A visit to the Blessed Michael McGivney Pilgrimage Center will enhance the formative experience of a pilgrimage to Father McGivney's tomb at St. Mary's," he said.
