Knights of Columbus


The Knights of Columbus is a Catholic men’s fraternal benefit society that was formed to be of service to the parish and local community, and to render financial aid to members and their families. The order was founded in 1881 by Father Michael J. McGivney, when he was a 29 year-old parish priest at St. Mary’s in New Haven, and has grown into an international organization of almost 2 million members.

The Rev. Francis S. O’Neill Council  #13862 is active in the parish and participates in a variety of charitable, religious and social events throughout the year. New members are always welcome. Anyone interested in finding out more about the Knights is encouraged to contact the council’s Grand Knight Carl Cieplinski (

The council holds monthly meetings in Milligan Hall.  Meetings are normally held on the second Monday of each month throughout the year, and are also posted in the parish bulletin and on the calendar on the homepage of this website.  Meetings begin at 7:30 p.m.

Our officers are:

Grand Knight:  Carl Cieplinski

Financial Secretary:  John Geoghegan, 860-233-7533

Treasurer:  Victor Dowling, 860-521-6060
