The grand knight is responsible for the welfare of the council. He presides over council meetings, acts as an ex-officio member of all committees, appoints a membership and programming director, convenes officers for a monthly meeting, and ensures all necessary reports are submitted to the state and Supreme Council. He should also be aware of the council’s financial status and ensure that his signature appears on all checks drawn. The grand knight is a member of the Advisory Board with general supervision of the council’s Columbian Squire circle.
About Our Council
St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Council was established on January 2009, by the Supreme Council. There were 62 charter members in the council and they elected Ernie Murphy as the council's first Grand Knight.
Throughout the Council's history its membership steadily increased and now stands at more than 100 Knights. We are a 501(c)(8) with the Council activities clearly manifesting the Knights of Columbus primary principles: In Service To One, In Service To All.
