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.

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.
