Bishop David M. O’Connell, C.M., will be the principal celebrant and homilist of a Mass to celebrate the beatification of Father Michael McGivney, founder of the Knights of Columbus.

The Mass, set for 10:30 a.m. Nov. 14 in St. Robert Bellarmine Co-Cathedral, Freehold, is expected to be attended by a maximum of 200 Knights and their spouses due to COVID-19 restrictions. It also will be livestreamed on youtube.com/trentondiocese.

At the Mass, Bishop O’Connell will bless a portrait of Father McGivney he has commissioned as a gift to the Knights of the Diocese, and it will be installed in the Co-Cathedral in honor of the fraternal organization’s members.
