  • According to Wikipedia, the Columbiettes are women auxiliaries of the Knights of Columbus Councils. In 1939, Monsignor J. Francis McIntyre, Chaplain of the New York Chapter Knights of Columbus, later a cardi-nal, suggested formation of the group. He had seen great numbers of women coming out of a Communist rally at Madison Square Garden. He conceived the idea of a ladies organization to work with the Knights of Co-lumbus (K of C). The New York Chapter K of C formulated a plan for such an organization. Their plan called for the establishment of Auxiliaries in each Council and to coordinate the efforts of all under the direction of one parent group. On March 2, 1939 the first Columbiettes was instituted in New York City. Since then, other auxiliaries were formed. State Councils and a Supreme Council were established. Spiritual patronesses are the Blessed Virgin Mary, Saint Thrse of Lisieux and Saint Joan of Arc. A Colum-biette Auxiliary must be sponsored by a Knights of Columbus Council. One of its purposes is to aid that Council spiritually, socially and financially in all its endeavors. The primary requirements to be a member of this organization is to be a Catholic female in good standing with her parish and to be seventeen (17) years of age or older. Secondary purposes include the spiritual, social and charitable welfare of their members. Locally, the Columbiettes in Newton (instituted on June 25, 1993) fall under the Don Bosco Knights of Co-lumbus Council Number 7784 which includes the parishes of Saint Joseph in Newton, Our Lady Queen of Peace in Branchville, Christ the Good Shepherd in Andover and Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Swartswood. The Don Bosco Columbiettes are sponsors of the Squirettes (Circlette of Marys Angels) which is a Catholic youth group for girls aged 10-17. Some of the activities completed/scheduled along with donations for 2016-2017 are:
