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. See the "about us" tab more council history.

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 Bill Skarwecki, Dennis Sullivan, Anthony Cusimano or any athlete, parent or family member of the team.
