About Our Council


Council  #112 traces its origins back to March 17, 1895 when a group of thirty-nine Catholic men from both St. John the Evangelist and Sacred Heart parishes were granted a charter by the Knights of Columbus Supreme Council. Dennis Donovan served for two years as the first Grand Knight. The Council worked closely in support of four Church's in Concord: Immaculate Heart of Mary on Loudon Road, as well as St. John the Evangelist, St. Peter's and Sacred Heart. Since the Catholic Church has gone through many changes within the State of New Hampshire, the Diocese of Manchester has closed Sacred Heart and St. Peter's Church's, and the two remaining, Immaculate Heart of Mary and St. John's (now Christ The King) are the last two remaining Catholic Church in Concord, that Council #112 supports, in addition to the Carmelite Monastery on Pleasant Street. Council 112 provides funds for various projects such as memorials, CCD programs, scholarships for local students, tournaments, communion breakfasts, Special Olympics, cancer research, Operation Santa Claus, and visiting hospital patients. Members are active participants in their respective parishes as organists, cantors, lectors, ushers, teachers, and Eucharistic Ministers.


The Knights of Columbus is the world's largest Catholic lay organization, with more than 1.7 million members in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Central America and the Caribbean and the Philippines and Poland. Last year, the Knights donated more than $139 million and over 64 million hours of volunteer time to charity.

3rd Annual "Fill A Truck" A SUCCESS !!!

Men, our 3rd annual food drive on the weekend of March 24th and 25th, was a great success.

The food drive was held on both days from 5:00 AM to 5:00 PM, at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church on Loudon Road.

The Concord Lions Club also provided manpower from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM each day. Leaving us just 5:00 AM to 2:00 PM to cover.

We had our great fire pit, and grill going throughout the weekend.

We had our banners, pop-up tent, and scale to weight and keep track of amount of donations.

Many thanks to Concord Monitor, The Lion's Club, WMUR TV, 107.7 The Pulse, and most importantly, ROSS Express, for our very valuable truck to fill

We wanted to collect 4,000 pounds of food/toiletries and $2,000 in cash donations, to match our contributions from last year ... and our donations exceeded that goal at over 4200 pounds of non-perishable food items donated for the St. Vincent dePaul Food Pantry at Christ The King Catholic Church in Concord.

Thank you men, for your incredible support, again, this year.

Free Room and Board Initiative:

Warner, NH:The College of Saint Mary Magdalen is pleased to announce that it will be extending its Free Room and Board Initiative to any freshman or transfer student who enrolls in 2018


The College of Saint Mary Magdalen initially launched this initiative in the spring of 2014 with the goal of making a faithful Catholic education more affordable to prospective students.


"The success of the Free Room and Board Initiative and the quality of the students who have enrolled this year as a result has prompted the College to extend the initiative for another recruiting cycle," said Dr. George A. Harne, President of the College of Saint Mary Magdalen.  

 

Free Room and Board will be guaranteed to any student who participates until they graduate or leave the College.  

 

Over the past 25 years the cost of tuition in the United States has sky-rocketed and through the Free Room and Board Initiative the College of Saint Mary Magdalen hopes to make a true liberal arts education accessible to students who may not have been otherwise able to afford it.

 

The reduction in cost represents an $8,000 discount worth more than $25,000 over four years.  The College has a rolling admission process and will be actively accepting students throughout the school year. 

 

For information on how to apply, please contact the admissions office at 603.456.2656 or  [email protected]
