Chromcik council #2574, Knights of Columbus, located in La Grange, Texas had its beginnings in 1925 during the pastorate of the Rev. E. A Holub, who encouraged the institution of a Knights of Columbus council in La Grange. Members of the Order living in La Grange, Fayetteville, Smithville and other nearby territory, not satisfied with holding membership in distant councils which made active participation in council affairs difficult, petitioned the State and Supreme Councils of the privilege of organizing a Council in La Grange. Permission was granted; members of surrounding Councils living in this area transferred their membership and the Council was chartered and formally installed on May 10, 1925.
The name "Chromcik Council" was selected in honor and in memory of the Rev. Jos. Chromcik, the first Czech Catholic missionary in Texas and one of the first resident priests in this part of the state. The first Grand Knight was John C. Schumacher of Rutersville whose efforts were largely responsible...
...for the institution of the Council.
Forty three men comprised the original charter membership although thirty two others, who were inducted into the Order on the date of the Council’s institution, likewise were extended the privilege of having their names on the Council charter.
Chromcik Council has grown from those early beginnings to a membership of over 500 members and into the current location at 190 S. Brown in La Grange. The Council participates and supports all the numerous worthwhile projects of the State and Supreme Councils. The Council has many awards over the years and continues to be recognized as a council that is very active in religious, patriotic and civic affairs and is recognized as one of the most active fraternal organizations in La Grange and one of the most motivated Councils in this part of the state.
Through its many activities, and as a result of entertaining meetings supplemented occasionally be social events for members and families, members keep up an active interest and regard with a real feeling of pride in their membership in Chromcik Council #2574, Knights of Columbus.
