Turning Compassion Into Action

From the moment of our founding in 1882, charity has been the first principle of the Knights of Columbus. We are Catholic men of faith and men of charitable action.

Our charitable activities encompass an almost infinite variety of local, national and international projects. Our own unique charities include the Christian Refugee Relief FundDisaster ReliefUltrasound Initiative, and Coats for Kids.

We also partner with international charities including Special Olympics, the Global Wheelchair Mission and Habitat for Humanity.

Locally, Coronation Council 1863 partners with Tackle Kids CancerLighthouse Pregnancy Resource CenterMadonna Church, seminarians of the Archdiocese of Newark, and others.   

Council 1863 meets every 1st Tuesday of the month at 7:30 pm for an informal gathering.

We also meet every 3rd Tuesday of the month at 7:30 pm for our official meeting.

The Grand Knight for the Columbian year 2019-2020 is Tony Rinaldi.

Here at Knights of Columbus Council 1863, we’re committed to investing our expertise and resources in order to further achieve our cause.

For over 100 years, we’ve been supporting our community members in a variety of ways and measuring our success not by monetary size, but by more qualitative measurements such as the scale and effectiveness of our efforts.

Just imagine what we can achieve together! To join us, send an email here: kofc1863@gmail.com.
