GlenAndJoleneCamley"We live to be of great hope to others, bringing forth faith and the love of God. If in the ripple of time, we make one small NHLogo 2018 300x300move that influences a better outcome for "the one" or "the many", then we have succeeded in what He has called for us to do ... to bring change and hope to others who have none in their lives. For, in God ... there is always hope!"

Let me welcome you to the Knights of Columbus, New Hampshire State Council website.

We are a vibrant state council that was chartered in 1892. Celebrating over 125 years of service to the citizens of our New Hampshire communities, we have grown to more than 7,000 members in 21 districts comprised of 69 active councils. Our mission is to serve our church, our community, our families, our country and those in need. This mission reflects the vision of our founder, the Venerable Father Michael J. McGivney, that is based on charity, unity and fraternity. These are the principles of our Order.

Father McGivney founded the Knights of Columbus 136 years ago to support its members in their faith, provide support for their families and to direct their charity to the Church and the needs of the less fortunate.

I encourage you to review the information within this website and discover the many service and charitable programs and activities offered by the New Hampshire State Council.

It is my sincere hope that you will gain an understanding of who we are and what we do, and that you will become inspired to join us in our mission of service.

On behalf of my fellow State Officers, our wives and our Brother Knights from throughout the New Hampshire State Council, we welcome you with open arms.

pdficon smallShirts Order Form

FrMcGivney 002Vocations to the priesthood and religious life are very important to the Catholic Church and to our Order. We need priests to offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and to teach and lead us on the path to Jesus. Education costs are extremely high for the candidates to the priesthood and religious life. The NH State Council wants to assist these men and women with a special calling by providing financial support for their education.

The Penny-A-Knight-A-Day (PKD) program was established by the NH State Council at the October
2009 Quarterly Meeting. This program is voluntary and provides needed dollars to the NH State Council Vocations fund. This fund is used to support religious vocations to qualified candidates throughout the State of NH.

On an annual basis, the PKD program asks each Brother Knight to add an additional $3.65 (Penny-A- Knight-A-Day) to their annual council dues. The entire $3.65 would be deposited into the NH State Council Vocations fund and used for priests and religious.

HolyFamilyThe Supreme Council encourages every council to participate in the Order’s “Family of the Month” program. On the 15th day of each month, 100 Family of the Month reporting forms are randomly selected and the families chosen receive a Holy Family plaque.

Councils must submit Form 1993A for the Family of the Month to enter the council’s Family of the Month into the monthly drawing. The completed Family of the Month form is submitted to Supreme Council Department of Fraternal Services (email fraternalmission [AT] kofc [DOT] org) and the State Deputy.
