PEI Knights of Columbus State Council Prize
Current 3rd Year
|Occasion:||Deans' Academic Honours and Awards Night|
|Process:||Recommendation from the Department of Religious Studies|
|Description:||Awarded to a well-rounded third-year student who has declared their minor in Catholic Studies and who is in good academic standing (minimum average of 80% in all four Catholic Studies courses taken).|
|Background:||In 1881, a small group of men met in New Haven, Connecticut and formed a fraternal society that would one day become the world's largest Catholic family fraternal service organization. These men were bound together by the ideal of Christopher Columbus, the discoverer of the Americas, the one whose hand brought Christianity to the New World. Their efforts came to fruition with the incorporation of the Knights of Columbus on March 29, 1882. They were Knights of Columbus. The Order has been called "the strong right arm of the Church," and has been praised by popes, presidents and other world leaders, for support of the Church, programs of evangelization and Catholic education, civic involvement and aid to those in need. This annual award was established by the PEI State Council Knights of Columbus.|
