Our Council

Knights of Columbus Council # 13341 is men from the parish of Our Lady of the Angels, Catholic Community in Bradenton, Florida. We started in 2003, however, being a young council by no way means we are lacking of activities. We have Fish Fries, a Tootsie Roll drive, we work at Habitat for Humanity, we have Blood Drives and we work at the Baltimore Orioles Spring Training games in Sarasota. The Knights of Columbus was founded by Venerable Servant of God Father Michael McGivney, a New Haven parish priest, in 1882. The organization was formed to provide charitable outreach and care for the financial well-being of Catholic families, focusing on the protection of widows and orphans, and on strengthening the faith of its members. It has grown into the world’s largest lay Catholic organization, with more than 1.9 million members throughout North and Central America, the Philippines, the Caribbean and Europe. The enormous force for good of the nearly 15,000 Knights of Columbus councils donated more than $1.5 billion and 682 million hours of service over the last decade to various charitable causes
