Welcome to St. Anselm Council 15133 of the Knights of Columbus

The council is located at St. Anselm Parish in Madisonville, Louisiana, on the northshore of Lake Pontchartrain. We were granted our charter in September, 2010, through the direction of the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council and the efforts of Charter Grand Knight Les Bascle and Charter Deputy Grand Knight Ed Estapa along with the blessings of our pastor Msgr. Frank Giroir. The council began with 53 charter members.

The Council meetings are held in St. Joseph Hall on the first Wednesday of the month at 7:00 PM. A dinner is usually served at 6:30 PM. The Officers meet on the last Wednesday of the month in St. Joseph Hall at 7:00 PM. Though it's called the "Officers Meeting", all members are eligible and invited to attend.

Introduction to the Knights of Columbus

The Knights are Catholic gentlemen committed to the exemplification of charity, unity, fraternity, patriotism and the defense of the priesthood. The Order is consecrated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. The Order is unequivocal in its loyalty to the Pope, the Vicar of Christ on earth. We are firmly committed to the protection of human life, from conception to natural death, and to the preservation and defense of the family.

Mystic Monk Coffee is roasted and shipped by the Carmelite Monks, a Roman Catholic monastery in the silence and solitude of the Rocky Mountains of northern Wyoming. The monks live a hidden life of prayer and contemplation in the pursuit of God. The Carmelite monks have mastered the ancient art of coffee roasting, laboring with steadfast determination to make each cup of coffee simply superb. Taste the monastic perfection in each brew, which makes all the difference.

You can purchase the finest roasted coffee, tea and accessories by clicking on the Mystic Monk logo and at the same time help our Council to assist others.
