70 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.
