Knights of Columbus Council 4175 Charter

In 1956, the Supreme Council had initiated a program of new council development with the purpose of creating councils in new neighborhoods and thus making them more viable and parish oriented.

On February 12, 1956 a joint initiation was held for the Charter Classes of the new North (Council 4175) and South (Council 4179) Knights of Columbus Councils. This large class was the culmination of several months of effort of the organizational committee under the direction of District Deputy, Louis Gietl and Knights of Columbus General Insurance Agent Paul Cooney.

The members of the Council 4175 Organizing Committee were the members of Council 364 and included Jim Gages and Roy Gillespie of St. Cabrini Parish and Mike Burns, Joe Naumovich and Paul McAnarney of St. Aloysius Parish.

Father Robert Franzen, who was then Assistant Pastor of St. Aloysius Parish was appointed the first Chaplain by Bishop William O'Connor.
