Father Michael J. McGivneys story as told in the Parish Priestby Douglas Brinkley and Julie M. Fenster. (Condensed with
contributions by the Editor) Part -28 in a series .Last in a Series Fr. McGivney succumbs to Illness and dies!
In 1889 Father Michael McGivney turned 37 years old and his strength began to wane. That peculiar malady, thatcertain strain of exhaustion that caught up to every priest in the nineteenth century, finally had the better of MichaelMcGivney. It left him vulnerable to any illness circulating among the people he served in Thomaston. That year he wasoften sick with a cold, but he kept to his duties at St. Thomass and the church in Terryville, even overseeing one hispopular church fairs in the last week in November. In December Father McGivney contracted Influenza. In January 1890it resulted in pneumonia. While McGivney was confined to his bed, the flu epidemic was spreading throughout thecountry. He eventually recovered from his bout with the flu but he was left with a weakness he could not overcome.Father McGivney had permanent damage to his system. In July of 1890 he was confined to bed. He was concerned forhis Parish Family and inquired daily about the Church. Father McGivney died on the Morning of August 14th 1890. It wastwo days after his 38th Birthday. At the time of his death the K of C had 6,000 members. Today the Knight of Columbus
number 1-million, eight hundred thousand strong. Fraternally D.D. Jim Albert
