Our Lady's Guild
The purpose of Our Lady's Guild is to promote devotion to the Blessed Mother, thus deepening our faith and drawing us closer to her Son.
Our Lady's Guild has three major functions:
Our spiritual life is enriched through recitation of the rosary after Masses, participation in Eucharistic Adoration, presentations by guest speakers. semi-annual days of recollection, pilgrimages and spiritual book discussions.
Our faith is put into action when we help others, including those outside the parish. We support the missions by making and donating rosaries throughout the year. In January, we help prepare and serve lunch to senior citizens at Lapham Community Center. At Christmas time our members collect and deliver gifts to a local nursing home. In addition, we visit and care for the homebound through various activities at Waveny Care Center, the New Canaan Inn and St. Camillus Health Center on an ongoing basis.
Members of Our Lady's Guild are very active in parish life, serving as Eucharistic Ministers, lectors, religious education teachers, and coordinators of various parish devotions. Our Lady’s Guild is responsible for the Living Rosary in October, Mary’s Way of the Cross in Lent, the Crowning of the Blessed Mother in May and the perpetual circulation of the Pilgrim Virgin statue. Every year we have some project that connects us with children in St. Aloysius School and the Religious Education Program to foster awareness and devotion to the Blessed Mother among our youth. Members are also responsible for all facets of our meetings, including hospitality, speaker coordination, scheduling, reporting, publicity, membership, remembrances, and reservations.

Knights of Columbus
In March 29, 1882, the Connecticut state legislature officially chartered the Knights of Columbus, a fraternal benefit society founded by Father Michael J. McGivney with a group of parishioners in the basement of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven. Still true to its founding principles of charity, unity, and fraternity 125 years later, the Knights of Columbus has grown to the largest lay Catholic organization in the world with more than 1.7 million members.
Throughout its history, the Knights of Columbus has been an effective advocate and defender of civil and religious rights for all. The organization has also contributed billions of dollars and millions of hours of volunteer service to charity.
Council #2287 was founded through the efforts of the men of St. Aloysius in 1921 and is named after Father John H. Stapleton. Our council works closely with the members of the parish as well as the surrounding areas. We also provide funds for various projects in the church, local community as well as larger charitable endeavors. Our regular meetings for members are held on the 1st Monday of every month at 8pm from September to June.
Membership in the Knights of Columbus is open to practicing Catholic men in union with the Holy See, who are at least 18 years old. A practicing Catholic is one who lives up to the Commandments of God and the precepts of the Church. Application blanks are available from any member of the Knights of Columbus. The current Grand Knight is John Otis. Email us for more information. Click here for a link to Knights of Columbus Website.
