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. The Knights render financial aid to members and their families. Mutual aid and assistance are offered to sick, disabled, and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief, and public relief works.

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, Philip Melchionne at [email protected]
