The Knights of Columbus was founded in 1882 by a 29 year old parish priest, Father
Michael J. McGivney, in the basement of St. Mary's Church in New Haven, Connecticut.
Today, more than a century later, the Knights of Columbus has become the largest lay
organization in the Catholic Church.

The Order has been called the "the strong right arm of the Church" and has been
praised by Popes, Presidents, and other world leaders, for support of the Church.

St. Anastasia Knights of Columbus Council #5911 was chartered by Supreme Council in
1966. We are committed to the exemplification of charity, unity, fraternity, and patriotism.
In our council you will find brother Knights working to fulfill the central mission of the
Order: striving in charitable works; serving the Church and unified in following its
teachings; supporting brother Knights in their temporal and spiritual needs; acting for the
good of their country, and giving aid to widows, orphans, the sick, and the poor.

Following are some of the organizations/groups we support:
•St. Mary's Hospital for Children;
•Father McGivney Home for Children and Young Adults;
•St. Anastasia RC Church;
•Little Neck/Douglaston Ambulance Corps.;
•Little Neck/Douglaston Annual Memorial Day Parade;
•Jamaica Outreach Project; and
•Catholic Charities.

This is Father McGivney's dream, echoing across the century, and living today in the
hearts of his brothers and all those they touch.
