Desperation of the Downes Family


Desperation of the Downes Family

In this podcast Fr. James Yamauchi recounts a little-known story about the inspiration of the young Fr. Michael McGivney to start the “small men’s society” known as the Knights of Columbus.

We are releasing stories every Wednesday; here is our website:

Fr. James is assigned at Holy Trinity at this time. He is a 4th degree Sir Knight, a member of the newest assembly in Forney. He was the pastor there when the assembly was formed. I have known Fr. James since his admission to the seminary, his parents are members of St Mark’s in Plano.
