On March 29, 1882, the Connecticut state legislature officially chartered the Knights of Columbus, a fraternal benefit society founded by Father Michael J. McGivney with a group of parishioners in the basement of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven. Still true to its founding principles of charity, unity, and fraternity 125 years later, the Knights of Columbus has grown to the largest lay Catholic organization in the world with more than 1.7 million members.
Throughout its history, the Knights of Columbus has been an effective advocate and defender of civil and religious rights for all.
Over the course of its history, the Knights of Columbus has been an unstoppable force for good in the Church and society.

St. Anna’s Knight of Columbus Council # 14425
Our Council was founded in December 2007 when a group of parishioners decided they wanted a fraternal organization that was more than just a Men’s Club. They wanted to start an organization that would be involved in helping our church, but also be part of a more established, larger organization that was in the business of serving the Church, charities and caring for families.
Some had been active Knights in other places and wanted to bring the unity, charity and fraternity values to this new group. The Knights with the help of St. Oliver Plunkett’s Knight of Columbus Council set a platform for establishing a new Knight of Columbus Council at St. Anna’s Catholic Church in 2007. The organization has grown from a few members to a total of 62 in 2010.
Council # 14425 is well established and provides services to aid in St. Anna’s Church Parish Ministries using their time and talent. The knights are well represented in St. Anna’s Organization Structure, Parish Council, Financial Committees, Steering Committee and other ministries assisting Father Dan as Eucharistic Ministers, Lectors, Ushers, etc. The knights are involved in the work for charities within the Monroe, Georgia community, and support state and national initiatives that support our values. A major perk of being a Knight is an insurance program that is comparatively low in cost and protects our families and much more.
