Knights of Columbus
Pope John Paul II Council 13956

Founded by an Irish-American Catholic priest, the Venerable Father Michael J. McGivney, in New Haven, Connecticut in 1882, the Knights of Columbus is the world's largest Catholic fraternal service organization. There are more than 1.8 million members in 14,000 councils, with nearly 200 councils on college campuses. Membership is limited to Catholic men 18 or older who are practicing their Catholic Faith and are able to receive the sacraments.

The Knights of Columbus erected the Pope John Paul II Council #13956 at St. Peter Parish on November 11, 2005. The Pope John Paul II Council has hosted innumerable spiritual and social events and parish pancake breakfasts, raised funds for the parish, pro-life and other charitable efforts, and continues to grow.
