69 Years of Tradition - for the Lansing Council # 3540:


Inspired by the works of the Knights of Columbus in other communities, a group of Knights, members from various councils and living in Lansing, and all members of St. Ann’s parish, consulted with their Pastor, Rev. Fr. Francis Bellerive and his assistants, Rev. Raphael Orozco and Rev. John Eichelman about forming a Knights of Columbus council in Lansing. These men saw the need for a catholic fraternal organization in the community. Like Fr. Michael J. McGivney, founder of the Knights of Columbus in 1882 in New Haven, CT., these men too saw what an organization of Catholic men could accomplish. Their vision was to encourage other Catholic men to join the order and help spread the works of the Knights of Columbus. The council was established on June 22, 1952.

Can you help the Lansing Swim Team?


          Due to changes with the State of Illinois Special Olympics Organization, the Lansing Swim team will not be able to hold their annual Tag days.  This annual weekend event asked for volunteers along with the Swim Team to be in front of Lansing storefronts, while others would solicit money from the street corners.



          In order to make up this lost revenue, the Swim Team will be selling $10.00 Raffle tickets starting now and through the next 30 weeks.  Weekly drawings of $150.00 will begin from November, 2022 through May, 2023.  If you can help with either selling raffle tickets, or would like purchase raffle tickets please see either Coaches Dennis Sullivan, Anthony Cusimano or any athlete, parent or family member of the team.

Annual Clergy Night:
Friday, May 13, 2022
$30.00 per person

Tickets are being printed and will be sold, very soon so please mark your calendars today! This evening is to honor all members of the Clergy and Religious serving our local parishes and community, which includes Priests, Sisters and Deacons who shepherd to their congregation at their parishes. 


Hospitality will begin from 6pm-7pm, followed by dinner and dessert from 7pm-8:15pm. Entertainment will follow from 8:30pm-9:30pm. A CASH BAR will be available throughout the entire evening, as well. The cost will be $30.00 per person.


This is our way of showing appreciation to the Clergy and Religious and their discipleship to the Roman Catholic Church in our local communities. Bring an appetite and be ready to share this most enjoyable evening with us!
