Council History

Who Are The Knights of Holy Trinity, and What Do They Do?

Our Council was founded by Fr. Joseph D. Gallagher on June 23, 1953.  Fr. Gallagher was the pastor of Holy Trinity at that time.  We honor Fr. Gallagher in the naming our council, and we strive every day to serve him, our Church, and our Community in the great tradition of the Knights of Columbus.

We are, among other things, Ushers, Eucharistic Ministers, Lectors, Church Choir Members, PREP and RCIA Catechists, members of the Pastoral Council, and other parishiners.  We as Knights do many things for the Community and Church.
