History of Council 6964

Council 6964 Original Charter

In mid 1977, a group of men from the Hoffman – Schaumburg area asked Father William Shields, Pastor of St. Hubert Church to help start a new Knights of Columbus council to perform works of charity in their neighborhoods. Today, our council represents the parishes of St. Hubert, Church of the Holy Spirit and St. Matthew. We all support each others parish as though it is our own.

 

Charity remains as our main principle and our mission. We fulfill these through programs of service and fund raising to support Catholic evangelization, civic causes and aid to those in need.

 

Our council was founded by SK Dick AmRhein, our first Grand Knight, pictured on the right.  Check out the original application above showing our council's first roster.

What We Do

We participate in charitable works, raising money and providing effort for groups in need throughout our communities. We provide social fellowship, reinforcing our beliefs and strengthening the ties between families and friends. It is our great privilege to serve and augment the activities of our parish and the church as a whole. And we provide support for those members who may find themselves in need, especially through our long standing and excellent insurance program.
