Msgr.George V.Lentocha Council # 3501

“Making Us Stronger with Faith and Family”


The Knights of Columbus is an organization fortified by its past and driven by its goals for the future. Our council was founded in 1952 and was originally named the “Middletown Council”. In 2010 the name was changed to the “Msgr. George V. Lentocha Council” to honor our late, long time Parish Pastor. It is through these five areas of service: Faith, Community, Family, Youth, and Fellowship that we truly make a difference.


As Knights, our faith is our foundation. Dedication to the Catholic Church’s growth and her good works. We support religious outreach, promote vocations, and provide financial support for seminarians. This way, we help support our Church and strengthen our personal faith.


As committed as we are to the Catholic Church, so are we to our communities. By actively and financially supporting Special Olympics, leading the charge in pro-life, or by helping feed the hungry. Knights of Columbus members all over the world have helped countless communities prosper.


As fathers and husbands, serving our families is not only part of what we do, it’s part of who we are. To that end, Knights of Columbus councils offer programs that strengthen family and marital bonds by holding numerous family focused events. Most importantly, as Knights, we can aid and support fellow Knights and their families when needed.


The importance of helping today’s youth become tomorrow’s leaders is also a huge focus of the Order. Through activities such as the Catholic Citizenship Essay contest, the Substance Abuse Poster contest, the Keep Christ in Christmas Poster contest, Coats for Kids program, and the annual Free Throw championship, the Knights of Columbus assists youth in building a strong sense of civic and religious responsibility.


To be a Knight means to believe in each other as we believe in ourselves, realizing that by creating strong, social, and supportive local councils, we help create a stronger Order worldwide and ensure an even stronger future.


We are Catholic Men. We live by principles informed by faith. We are sons, fathers, husbands, and     grandfathers. Join us on life’s greatest adventure to discover the man God calls you to be.
