St. Joseph-Bishop Baldwin Council # 15809

The Knights of Columbus, founded in 1882, is an international, fraternal organization, with more than 1.8 million members. Our mission is to do good works, consistent with our four core principles: Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism.

We have named this council, to honor our patron saint, St. Joseph as well as our former pastor, Bishop Vincent J. Baldwin, the first Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of Rockville Centre. We formed this new council in March of this year, and have already grown to over 80 members! We are looking to continue the growth of this council as well as a network of adult Catholic men who wish to support the needs of our parish community.
