Our Lady of the Rosary Council #9039
|The Columbiettes were founded in 1939 by Monsignor J. Francis
McIntyre, as a ladies' organization to work with the Knights of
Columbus. On March 2, 1939 the first Columbiettes were instituted in
New York City.
WHO ARE THE COLUMBIETTES?
The Columbiettes are formed with the approval of the Knights of
Columbus Council with which it is affiliated. We stand ready at all times
to assist them when needed.
The Columbiettes are ordinary ladies who are proud of reaching out
and helping those less fortunate by meeting the needs of the people
in their communities and around the world.
The Columbiettes are a growing and vibrant service organization of
Catholic ladies who are willing to make a difference in today’s society.
We boldly choose to take a strong stand on issues that are devastating
to human life.
By conducting a variety of programs we are bringing Columbiettes
together as they can strengthen their bond of friendship within the
Organization. The benefits from membership are many – spiritual,
moral, educational and social.
As a Columbiette you can allocate your time as your daily schedule
permits. To maximize your enjoyment and personal contributions,
there are no specific requirements or amount of time to spend within
the Organization. Everyone in the Organization participates at
whatever level of commitment that makes her comfortable.
With your time, special skills or talent we offer you the opportunity to
give back something to your Community as well as your Parish.
|Any practicing Catholic women ages eighteen and up may join the
Columbiettes. You do not have to be married to a member of the
Knights of Columbus. You can be married, single or widowed.
For Information on joining our Auxiliary please contact our President
Meetings are the second Thursday of the month at 7:00pm at St. Brendan
