With support from Calgary local councils and the Supreme Council, Knights donated $235,000 to renovate an old Protestant church into the new Father Michael J. McGivney Hall at St. Mary’s University College, the only school of its kind in Canada that prepares teachers to work specifically in Catholic schools. A plaque commemorating the Order’s contribution was blessed by Calgary Bishop Frederick B. Henry in a ceremony on the campus.
