About Us

The Father Baumgartner Council #5452 is a group of over 280 local gentlemen from three parishes where faith, service and charity are at the heart of all we do.

The Knights of Columbus was established in 1882 by Father Michael J. McGivney, an assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven, Conn. Today the Knights of Columbus has over 2 million Knights located on every continent except Antarctica (so far).
