Council 6735 at 43 West Maple Street, Merchantville, NJ 08109-5141 US - Home
Welcome to Our Website
Welcome to the Saint Peter’s Council 6735 of the Knights of Columbus.
Father Michael J. McGivney and a handful of Catholic laymen founded the Knights of Columbus in 1882, in the basement of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in New Haven, Connecticut. The aim of the founder was to set up a parish-based lay organization that offered insurance benefits to the widows and children of members. In an era when parish and fraternal societies were popular, Father McGivney felt there should be some way to strengthen the religious faith of his flock and provide financial support for families overwhelmed by illness or the death of the breadwinner.
