The History of St. John's Council
St. John's Council was chartered in 1908 and celebrated its hundredth anniversary in 2008. From humble beginnings with the thirty men who signed our charter, today we are 600 strong.
Having a long history doesn't mean that we can rest on our laurels. St. John's Council is one of the
busiest Councils in the State of New Jersey. We strive to go the extra mile when our faith calls upon us and when our community needs us. Our
latest initiative is the organ donor program, detailed on our home page. Members of our Council have been traveling the state, spreading the
word on this simple way to help preserve life - and it started right here.
From fundraisers for local groups, families and charities to feeding the homeless, St. John's Council #1345 has risen to the call to fullfill
our obligations as Knights.
If you have the time, we invite you to watch a short
