Chaplain and Clergy – Andover Knights of Columbus

Chaplain and Clergy

The clergy play an integral role in the life of the Council. Led by the Chaplain, our clergy members provide moral, ethical, and fraternal guidance to the council and its leadership. The Chaplain serves as an officer in the council, opens and closes our meetings with prayer, and supports the overall programming of the council. Our clergy are an important part of the council’s membership as they symbolize and strengthen the relationship between the Council and the Church.

Chaplain
Reverend Edward J. Enright, O.S.A.
