Monsignor Edward S. Wright Council 15119

The Knights of Columbus is the world's largest Catholic family fraternal service organization. The Order has been called "the strong right arm of the Church," and has been praised by popes, presidents and other world leaders, for support of the Church, programs of evangelization and Catholic education, civic involvement and aid to those in need.

The Monsignor Edward S. Wright Council was founded on July 31, 2010 through the efforts of the Garry Daly and Bill Laudando the District Deputy and the 31 charter members. It is named after Monsignor Edward S. Wright who was the first pastor and founder of Blessed Sacrament Parish.

The Monsignor Edward S. Wright Council works closely with Blessed Sacrament, providing funds for various projects including to the Pancake Breakfast and Tootsie Roll Banks. Members, being active participants in their parish, provide mutual aid and assistance to sick, disabled and needy members and their families.

All the good works we do are informed by our four core principles: Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism.
