The COLUMBIETTES is a unified international organization of Catholic women dedicated to our Patronesses, Our Blessed Virgin Mary, Saint Theresa the Little Flower and Saint Joan of Arc. They were founded in 1939 by Monsignor J. Francis McIntyre. Through the integrity, strength and scope of the Auxiliary activities, the Columbiettes have become a recognized group of women working with the Knights of Columbus, promoting the ideals of Columbianism.
