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 80 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.
If you’re interested in helping those in need, serving your parish, growing in your faith or having exclusive access to top-rated insurance protection for your family, then the Knights of Columbus is the organization for you.
Becoming a Knight of Columbus can transform your life. As a Knight, you have the opportunity to support your parish, give back to your community, grow in your faith and gain exclusive access to our top-rated insurance program to protect your family. These are just some of the reasons to become a Knight.
We are a band of brothers, a network of men in communities around the world dedicated to doing good in the service of God and our neighbor.
