Knights of Columbus Council #3546

kofclogoThe Stella Maris Council #3546, Knights of Columbus, was founded in 1952 in Cape May, NJ. We provide lay support to St. John Neumann Parish within their many ministries and functions, in addition to serving as ushers, lectors, altar servers and Eucharistic Ministers at Mass and to the homebound. We have a Merit Scholarship Program that is funded by a monthly breakfast held at the Council Home, St. Raymond Campus Hall, 25 E. Ocean Ave., Villas on the first Sunday of each month. The scholarship money goes toward tuition at Wildwood Catholic High School. Knights also support New Jersey Right to Life and participate in the programs mandated to the Council from the State of New Jersey and the Supreme Order of the Knights of Columbus. The wives and children of the Knights support them in their endeavors and play an important role in their success. What do we need? We need you! We need young men to join the Knights. You must be 18 years old or older, attend Mass and keep the Sacraments, believe and follow the teachings of the Pope. What's keeping you? Please call Grand Knight Paul Jelcic 845-558-4186 for more information.
