WELCOME TO THE KNIGHTS
In the state of Kansas, there are 261 Councils, with a total of more than 36,000 members. In our Council alone, we have a membership of more than 300 Knights. These Knights consist of men from all walks of life who made a commitment to give of their time and talent to the Council. Every person brings something new to our Council through their interests, hobbies or profession.
Building the Church was part of Father McGivney's vision when he founded the Knights of Columbus in 1882. Here at Prince of Peace Council 7909, we give many hours each year by helping our priests, our Parish and our community. Active participation and member recruitment helps to keep our council strong and make it, what we feel is, the best in the state.
ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION
Thanks to the efforts of Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven and some of his parishioners, the Connecticut state legislature on March 29, 1882, officially chartered the Knights of Columbus as a fraternal benefit society. The Order is still true to its founding principles of charity, unity and fraternity.
A Knights of Columbus council can work wonders; in fact, with its many programs, it can help change the community, town, city or neighborhood in which you live. However, a successful Knights of Columbus program depends on people taking the initial idea, modifying it to suit specific situations and local needs, then implementing the program in the way it works.
Each local council evaluates the needs of their community and implements those programs and activities that are most needed in their area.
