The St Edward the Confessor Knights of Columbus Council #12968 was authorized by the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council on July 7, 2001. There were 46 members who became the founding members of the Council. Sir Greg Horan who became the second Grand Knight of our Council is attributed to the basic foundation of the Council as it exists today, He had set a high bar for all of us to achieve. With just three years of operation he had managed to have this council achieve many awards two stand out the most and they are the two Star Council awards. At Connecticut State Convention in 2004 he was awarded the Connecticut Grand Knight of the year award. Many of the future Grand Knights and other brothers have made some outstanding contributions to this council but Greg was basically our first Grand Knight, setting a high moral and service standard for his fellow brothers to follow and we have. The council has received many Star Council awards and in 2015 Joe Simons received the State Of Connecticut Knights of Columbus Leadership award. The membership in the council is now 115.
