This concurrent resolution commemorates the 138th anniversary of the founding of the Knights of Columbus, and commends its tireless efforts in selfless works of charity.
By their deeds, the Knights of Columbus exemplify both individual and collective commitment to the bedrock principles of charity, unity, fraternity, patriotism, the protection of human life, as well as their deep, abiding faith. As the Knights of Columbus grows, in terms of membership, works, and presence throughout the world, its charity touches the lives of millions.
The New Jersey State Council, in particular, has been recognized as one of the most fruitful branches of the Knights of the Columbus, and their contributions to our community are evident throughout the State. The New Jersey State Council has been an essential part of New Jersey’s culture.
Accordingly, this resolution serves to recognize the Knights of Columbus on its 138th anniversary, memorialize their works of charity, and honor their past, present, and future members.
