Men Called KnightsIn the state of Kansas, there are 261 Councils, with a total of more than 36,000 members. In our Council alone, we have a membership of more than 450 Knights. These Knights consist of men from all walks of life who made a commitment to give of their time and talent to the Council. Every person brings something new to our Council through their interests, hobbies or profession.
Building the Church was part of Father McGivneyís vision when he founded the Knights of Columbus in 1882. Here at Prince of Peace Council 7909, we give many hours each year by helping our priests, our Parish and our community. Active participation and member recruitment helps to keep our council strong and make it, what we feel is, the best in the state.
What We DoThe Knights in our Council participate in a wide variety of activities throughout the year, which all revolve around our four Core Values: Charity, Unity, Fraternity and Patriotism. Some members are involved in multiple activities and events while others may choose to participate in only one. Either way, you are making a difference.
While hosting our events, we make it easy by having plenty of people there to help. We
have a lot of fun working together and itís a great time to meet new people and make new
