Waterbury, Connecticut

About Waterbury, Conecticut:

The city of Waterbury became famous as a center of brass manufacturing in the late 19th to early 20th centuries.  A large influx of workers from mainly Catholic countries such as Italy and Ireland naturally meant a growth in Catholic churches as well.

It is also the birthplace of Fr. Michael J. McGivney, who  saw the tragedy that followed the death of a breadwinner in such communities and founded the Knights of Columbus in nearby New Haven.
