Knights of Columbus

The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic fraternal organization founded in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney. It is open to practicing Catholic men at least 18 years of age, and is based on the principles of charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism. Here at Saint Anthony Church, members of the Father O’Dea Council 13459 consider each other as brothers. We strive to conduct ourselves in a way that reflects Catholic values and beliefs, as we provide help and assistance to our church, community, and people in need.

We are always looking for new members. Anyone interested in joining our council can contact Grand Knight Bob Schepis at 203-729-0758 or [email protected].

Knights of Columbus members John Riley and Bob Schepis came to the parish center to present Father Gregory with a check for $500. The money will be used to help offset the cost of new lighting which was recently installed at the parish center.
