Knights of Columbus Council #1395



Hartford Yard Goats trip 9/10/2023

The game may have been rained out but not all was lost.  Those attending still enjoyed the food and camaradarie as we waited for a final word on the game.  Since it was the last game of the season tickets can be redeemed for a game next season. 


The Knights of Columbus is a worldwide organization of Catholic men begun by the Venerable Father Michael McGivney in Connecticut in 1882.  They began as a fraternal benefit society and still adhere to the principles of Charity, Unity and Fraternity.  Their benefit to the Catholic Church of America has been inestimable.  The Knights have come to the defense of our faith and our Catholic people from 1882 to the present.  Currently, there are about 1.8 million members joined into 14,000 councils.

The Knights of Columbus is linked to the local parish(es), supports it, and works with the local Pastor.  It is not a parish organization.  To this end, it has been able through works of charity, donations, and education to support the National Basilica, EWTN, and the Holy Father. 

The Reverend Felix J. O'Neil Knights of Columbus Council Chapter #1395 was chartered at St. Edward Church in 1908.  Our motto is: Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism.  As an organization of Catholic men who support Priests, Church and Community.  The Knights of Columbus meets the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of each month in the Parish Hall. For more information, please contact Dave Broer at dbroer@lincon.

The chapter is involved in many activities:

  • Sponsor:  Education contests through St. Edward Religious Education classes.
  • Support:  Mentally challenged persons.
  • Provide: Scholarships to graduating students from Stafford High School.
  • Contribute to: Seminarians to further vocations for the priesthood.
  • There is an award program in our Catholic community and supply student loans through the State Program for Colleges and Universities.
  • Life Insurance programs are available for all Knights of Columbus members.
