Knights of Columbus Council #13026
We are located at St. Francis of Assisi Parish in the rural town of Litchfield, New Hampshire. Our council was founded in 2000 and has since become one of the state's most active councils. We have achieved the Council of the Year Award, the Star Council Award twice, and in 2015 we received the Fr. McGivney Award. We currently have over 60 members and are always looking for new men to join our ranks.
Our council meets on the second Thursday of each month at 7:30 PM in the St. Francis school cafeteria.
The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic fraternal benefit organization founded in 1882 by Fr. Michael J. McGivney at St. Mary's Church in New Haven, CT. The order was originally formed to render financial aid to members and their families. The founding principles of the order are charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism. The Knights of Columbus has grown from several members in one council to more than 14,000 councils and 1.8 million members throughout the world.
