COUNCIL INFORMATION

Who We Are

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Council 10678 was founded in 1991 through the dedicated efforts of our forty-eight charter members. Many of our initial members came from the Fr. McCormick Council 3880, when our growing Catholic Community coalesced into the parish of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton.

The council is named after the first native-born North American to be canonized by the Catholic Church, and works closely with the parish of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton in Crystal Lake, Illinois.

 OUR PRINCIPLES

All the good works we do are informed by our four core principles:

  • Charity
  • Unity
  • Fraternity
  • Patriotism

HISTORY OF THE KNIGHTS OF COLUMBUS

On Oct. 2, 1881, a group of men met in the basement of St. Mary’s Church on Hillhouse Avenue in New Haven. Called together by their 29-year-old parish priest, Father Michael J. McGivney, these men formed a fraternal society that would one day become the world’s largest Catholic family fraternal service organization.

They sought strength in solidarity, and security through unity of purpose and devotion to a holy cause: they vowed to be defenders of their country, their families and their faith.

These men were bound together by the ideal of Christopher Columbus, the discoverer of the Americas, the one whose hand brought Christianity to the New World. Their efforts came to fruition with the incorporation of the Knights of Columbus on March 29, 1882.

They were Knights of Columbus.
