Hello and greetings from The Garden State!
Along with the 62,000 members, the State Officers, Past State Deputies and our families in New Jersey, I want to welcome you to the New Jersey State Council Website. Thank you for visiting and I truly hope you find it enlightening and informative. We have changed the website to make it more user-friendly for those just visiting and have expanded it for our members.
If you are visiting our website and considering joining the Knights of Columbus, I ask you to look at “Join Us!”! This is a special section that deals with a new and exciting membership opportunity for men over the age of 18 and who are practical Catholics, as defined by the Roman Catholic Church. It’s called “E-Membership”! It gives men, who would like to join the Knights and take advantage of the many charitable, social and fraternal benefits we offer, the opportunity to join electronically. This is a new way for us to reach out to men interested in joining a Catholic charitable organization.
Our website is user-friendly! Just click on a menu bar option and select a topic from the drop-down list you wish to view. Most areas are open to the general public but some are restricted to the membership. If you are a member, you will need a log-in and password to enter member-specific sections. If you are not yet registered, or you need to upgrade your authorization level, please register at the upper right corner of this home page. If you need help to register, send an inquiry to the State Webmaster, firstname.lastname@example.org, to secure this information.
Our site has been created to help you find topics on what we do, who we help and how you can become a member. In addition it offers specific information, such as:
- Necessary reporting forms and documents for Council Officers;
- Many State Programs available for your consideration and to see what the Knights do;
- Key on-line membership information;
- Forming Parish Roundtables in local areas; and
- Information and contacts for the New Jersey State Council.
We encourage everyone to familiarize themselves with this website and become more aware of the good we do in our Parishes, Communities and local Councils.
The Knights of Columbus is the largest, Catholic, fraternal, family service organization in the world!!! We are considered the “right arm of the Catholic Church”, and thus we strive to assist our Pastors and Parishes in ways toward “Building the Domestic Catholic Church”.
Thank you for visiting our website and if you have any questions, please email us at email@example.com.
