DeSoto Council # 6 was founded in 1884 in Cromwell Ct. It is named after the Spanish explorer Hernando DeSoto, who was among the first to explore Florida and the South Eastern United States in 1539. For the last 126 years the DeSoto Council has worked closely with St. John's Church and more recently with the Holy Apostles Seminary providing service and raising funds to help support their work. The DeSoto Council # 6 is located in the Diocese of Norwich and is a part of the Knights of Columbus Connecticut Council.
Today, more than a century later, the Knights of Columbus has become the largest lay organization in the Catholic Church.
Our order is unequivocal in its loyalty to the Pope, the Vicar of Rome. The Knights of Columbus are firmly committed to the protection of human life, from conception to natural death, and to the preservation and defense of the family.
